Quick Side Dish – String Beans

My BFF fixed this the other day with meat loaf and scalloped potatoes…They were excellent.


Fresh Garlic

Olive Oil

Whole String Beans

Pearl Onions

Mushrooms (any kind)

You can use all frozen vegetables or fresh.  If you use fresh – you will need to cook longer.   You probably could even use Sesame Oil to add a different flavor.

Cut up the garlic and put in the pan with olive oil.  Use about 5 or 6 cloves if you like garlic, if not just use a couple.  Saute’ for a minute and add the pearl onions.  Add the string beans, and mushrooms and season to taste.  Cook for about 10 minutes and your side dish is done.

This was soo good – I can’t wait to have it again.

This looks like the original recipe – my friend added her own twist…Love her cooking!

I looked up a couple of weight watcher string bean recipes..sharing a few I am definitely going to try:

Green Beans with Mushrooms and Crisp Onion Crumbs
