4 servings / 40 min

Prep  5 min / Cook 35 min

Ingredients
  • 1/2 lb (225 g) wild mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 lb (450 g) Cipollini onions
  • 1/3 cup (80 mL) sodium reduced vegetable or chicken stock
  • 2 lb (900 g) green beans, trimmed
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) sodium reduced tamari or sodium reduced soy sauce
  • 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) pepper
Directions
  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.
  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.
  3. Add stock and continue cooking, covered, on a low heat for another 15 minutes, until soft.
  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.

Tip: 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.
