    Units: US | Metric

    • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
    • 3 large shallots, thinly sliced
    • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh lemon thyme or 1 teaspoon fresh summer savory
    • 1 1/4 lbs fresh wild mushrooms (read *NOTE)
    • 1/2 lb brown button mushroom, thickly sliced
    • 1/3 cup madeira wine
    • 3/4 lb French haricots vert, ends trimmed (or any small, slender green beans)
    • 3 tablespoons fresh low sodium vegetable broth or 3 tablespoons fresh chicken stock
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper


    1. 1
      *NOTE: Suggested mushrooms for this dish: portobellas, chanterelles, shiitake, oyster, etc.
    2. 2
      In a large pot over medium-high heat melt 1/4 cup butter. Add the shallots and thyme, sauteing until shallots begin to brown, approximately 4 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add the mushrooms; season with salt and pepper. Saute the mushroom mixture only until the juices evaporate, about 8-10 minutes. Do not overcook. The mushrooms should NOT be slimy!
    4. 4
      Next add the Madeira, tossing with all the ingredients until evaporated, about 1 minute longer. Set pan aside- off burner.
    5. 5
      In a medium-sized pot of boiling, lightly salted water blanch the haricots until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water to halt cooking. Drain.
    6. 6
      Return pan of mushroom mixture to burner and add remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Stir in the haricots verts. Toss the vegetables over medium-high heat until the butter has melted and vegetables are heated through, about 2-3 minutes.
    7. 7
      If mixture is too dry, add some vegetable or chicken broth 1 tablespoon at a time.
    8. 8
      Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Transfer vegetables to serving dish and garnish with thyme or summer savory sprig if desired.
