Green Beans with Mushrooms and Shallots p. 246
Ellie is right - the combination of these three ingredients is "much more than the sum of its parts." I just thought my favorite green beans were Ina's that she does with shallots. The addition of mushrooms makes this even more yummy. I used plain ol' sliced mushrooms - nothing fancy although I'm sure it would be really good with an assortment of different varieties (will try that the next time). What I really like about the shallots in this dish is that after they are really browned they taste like bacon - really, they do! What could be better - bacon taste without the fat and calories!
