Looking to change up your typical vegetable?  Look no further!  On top of some variety, this side will add a ton of great nutrients to your diet.  For a complete meal, ensure to add a protein option and a grain.



Step 1

In a large skillet sprayed with vegetable oil, add mushrooms and oil and sauté on medium heat until mushrooms lose their moisture, about 8 minutes.

Step 2

Peel onions and slice in half. Add to mushrooms and sauté on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes until soft and caramelized, stirring often.

Step 3

Add stock and continue cooking, covered, on a low heat for another 15 minutes, until soft.

Step 4

Meanwhile, boil or microwave green beans for about 3 minutes or until beans are still crispy and bright green. Drain and add to onion and mushroom mixture along with sesame oil, tamari, and salt and pepper.


Use any mushroom or combination of mushrooms you like. I like meatier mushrooms such as oyster, shiitake, or king trumpet. If you are using regular mushrooms, be sure to cook them well on a higher heat to eliminate all the moisture. If you can’t find Cipollini onions, use shallots cut into wedges.
