      The beans stayed crisp and the mushrooms tender. I mixed the lemon juice, zest and walnut together while the beans roasted. Loved the flavors. A couple more minutes would have done these nice. I would have like a bit of browning of the beans. Cooking on the top rack in the oven would be the way to go. Thanks for healthy eats!

      I made this for dinner tonight to go along with fresh asparagus, sweet potatoes, and a large salad. They were wonderful! The beans were still nice and crisp and the addition of lemon juice and thyme really brightened their flavor. I did omit the mushrooms only because of majority rule...2 against 4; and I used cashews in place of walnuts because of a food alergy issue. I will definitely make this recipe again. Thanks for sharing Paula. Made and reviewed for the 40th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.

      A tasty, easy to make, green bean side dish. The combination of mushrooms, beans, and walnuts was really good. Toasting the walnuts really brought out the nutty flavor. This recipe would also be good with some crispy crumbled bacon on top but made it exactly as written for RSC #15 contest.
