Easy Green Beans with Mushrooms Recipe

Easy Green Beans with Mushrooms Recipe

  • Author: Brandie Valenzuela
  • Yield: 4-5 servings 1x


Make this Easy Green Beans with Mushrooms Recipe in about 15 minutes for a quick side dish with only 3 ingredients: fresh green beans, mushrooms, and butter.


  • water for pot
  • 16 ounces fresh green beans (ends trimmed)
  • 23 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces mushrooms (sliced)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)


  1. Fill a large pot with water (enough that it will cover your green beans). Bring the water to a boil. Add the greens beans to the water. Cook, uncovered until bright green and crisp-tender (about 3-4 minutes). Drain and rinse with cold water until cooled. Drain off any excess water.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add mushrooms and cook uncovered for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the green beans to the mushrooms and cook for another 3-5 minutes or until green beans reach desired tenderness (they should still have a nice crunch). Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and serve.


Adding 1-2 cloves of crushed garlic or cooked bacon bits near the end of the cooking is also delicious.
