GREEN BEANS WITH MUSHROOMS AND TOMATO This is easy, and it can be made no fat, which is the way we do it. It makes a tasty side dish or a light lunch with rice.
To Serve Two (Can be doubled or tripled for more):
1/2 lb fresh green beans - trim but leave whole 1/3 cup chopped onion 2 oz sliced fresh mushrooms, your choice 1 plum tomato, seeded and chopped salt and pepper to taste.
Add beans to boiling water and cook until barely tender over high heat - around 4 minutes. Drain.
Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook your onion in a little stock or water until softish and then add the mushrooms and tomato and stir until the mushrooms have released their liquid, around 5 minutes. By now your beans will be more than ready.
Add the drained green beans, salt and pepper (if used) and toss beans in the mushroom mix until beans are reheated. Serve warm.
