Green Beans with Shallots, Thyme, and Shiitake Mushrooms

Ingredients
2
pounds green beans, trimmed
2
tablespoons olive oil
2
tablespoons butter
1/4
cup thinly sliced shallots (2 medium)
12
ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and halved
3
tablespoons lemon juice
2
tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
 
Coarse sea salt or kosher salt
 
Freshly ground black pepper

cup slivered almonds (optional)

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boiling. Add green beans. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Cook, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain green beans in a colander. Run cold water over beans until chilled to stop the cooking and keep the beans bright green.
  2. In an extra-large skillet heat oil and butter over medium heat. Add shallots; cook just until tender, stirring frequently. Add mushrooms; cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently.
  3. Add green beans. Cook for 5 to 8 minutes or until heated through, tossing occasionally. Add lemon peel, lemon juice, and thyme; toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. If desired, garnish with almonds.
