"Truly a delicious and basic side that goes great with almost any meal. Simple and delicious."
French style green bean, washed, dried
( Haricots Verts)
white button mushrooms, rinsed, dried and cut in fourths
walnuts, coarse chopped
salt and pepper

Place the green beans and mushrooms on a large cookie sheet; sprinkle with thyme and drizzle with olive oil; toss to coat. Place in a 450 degree oven and roast for 15 minutes or until beans are crisp tender.
While the beans are roasting, place the walnuts in a heavy skillet and over medium high heat, toast tossing frequently until nuts are fragrant and lightly toasted. Set aside.
Remove beans from oven, sprinkle with lemon zest, coarse salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle with lemon juice, sprinkle with the toasted walnuts, toss to distribute ingredients. Enjoy!
