Pam's Green Beans with Mushrooms and Shallots

This recipe is taken directly from Pam's For the Love of Cooking blog!  I am a huge fan of her recipes - they are healthy, simple, and full of flavor.  If you haven't check out her blog - there's literally nothing she hasn't made!

Green Beans with Mushrooms and Shallots

Fresh green beans, ends trimmed
2 tsp olive oil
Button mushrooms, sliced
1 small shallot, sliced into thin rings
2 cloves of garlic
Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste

Add the green beans to a pot of boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water or an ice bath to stop the cooking and to retain the bright green color. Set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and let them cook (without stirring) for 3-4 minutes; stir and add the shallots to the skillet. 

Cook the shallots and mushrooms for 2 minutes before adding the minced garlic and green beans. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute or until the green beans are nice and hot. Season with sea salt and pepper, to taste.
