Balsamic Green Beans and Mushrooms

I have to be honest. Green beans and I have never really gotten along. When we were little and eating dinner, our mom would “turn on the timer” when we refused to eat our food. Every time we had green beans, I always got the timer, which made me dislike them even more! I’ve been trying to eat a lot more vegetables, but I’ve been avoiding green beans! The other day, I made our balsamic asparagus, and I realized I could make it with green beans (and some mushrooms to make it a little more appealing). It turned out great!

  1. I disagree with you on the green beans ~ I absolutely love them! But after having a brush with diabetes a few years ago and switching my diet, I came to realize green beans are the diabetics new best friend. This recipe totally spices them up and looks delicious. I like how put a pic for equipment needed for this recipe, I find that helpful.
