    Maito's Note:

    Adapted from a Bon Appetit recipe - the original did not include lemon. Serving size is based on a holiday meal, it probably serves half as many if it were your only vegetable dish. Note: you can rehydrate dry shiitake mushrooms if you can't find fresh.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Melt tub margarine in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add mushrooms and sauté for about 5 minutes. Remove and reserve, covered.
    2. 2
      Add shallots and garlic to the pan and sauté until they soften, about 2 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add green beans and toss to coat. Add lemon juice and wine, cover, and simmer on low until most of the liquid evaporates, about 10 minutes. Be careful not to overcook them, the beans should be crisp-tender.
    4. 4
      Add mushrooms back in and warm for about 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve.

      These green beans where great, I loved the lemon flavor and the shiitake mushrooms where a nice touch. Will make these again.

      Love the flavor the shiitakes added. I did decrease the amount of lemon juice but found that half the amount was pretty subtle in flavor.

      I used onion in place of the shallot and dried shiitake mushrooms that I soaked and then used the liquid to cook the beans along with the lemon and white. I didn`t use the smart balance I opted for Olive oil. This is easy and quick to make. Some red pepper flakes would kick this over the top. This does have the perfect cooking time for al dente beans. My DH said he would have like it more cooked. But what does he know. I enjoyed it. Thanks!
