Excellent green beans! I ended up using sliced button mushrooms because there was only one package of shiitake mushrooms left in the store and they looked questionable..ha. I used the least amount listed for the lemon and thought it was perfect. Delicious green beans with the mushrooms, shallots and garlic. Company worthy. Thank you! Oh..tucking this into my best of 2015 file!

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!

Nice side dish! I loved the shiitake mushrooms. I had to rehydrate as I couldn't find any fresh. I used 2 T. lemon juice and was a little too tangy for us, but I will definitely be playing with this recipe to suit our family tastes. :) Thanks, Maito!
