Green Beans with Sherried Mushrooms and Fried Shallots

Here is a different green bean casserole type side dish which is loaded with health ingredients and which tastes simply scrumptious.  Besides green beans, it includes healthy mushrooms, shallots, olive oil, garlic and more. Makes a perfect holiday side dish.


2 pounds green beans, cooked to the degree of “done” you prefer
1 cup thinly sliced shallot
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 pound cremini mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
¼ teaspoon ground white pepper
Sea salt, to taste
¼ cup dry sherry
½ cup heavy cream (no substitute)

(As always, choose organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe.)


1. Place the cooked green beans in a serving dish and keep them warm until the toppings are ready.

2. For the shallots, break up the rounds into individual rings before you cook them, so they will crisp up more as they fry. Heat the olive oil over medium-high in a medium skillet. Add the shallots and cook, stirring frequently, until the rings get brown and start to look crispy. Do not let them burn, but let them get nicely browned. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with a little salt.

3. For the sauce, heat the butter over medium-high in a large skillet. Add the mushrooms, garlic, white pepper, and salt, and cook, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms are softened. Increase the heat to high and add the sherry. Cook until the sherry has mostly cooked off, and there is only a little liquid around the mushrooms. Add the cream and cook, stirring frequently, until the sauce has reduced enough to easily coat a spoon.

4. Pour the mushrooms and sauce over the green beans, and top with the fried shallots right before serving.

5. You must use real cream in the sauce or it will not thicken, so don’t try to go low fat with this recipe. You are pouring that sauce over a whole bunch of green beans, so this is totally healthy, trust me. Also, if you grew up in an area that called green onions “shallots,” note that here it means the smaller, purple-skinned, onion-looking-things. Green onions will not work as a substitute.
