Green Beans with Mushrooms Garlic and Red Pepper

Hi Everyone,  I created this recipe this evening.  As you may have noticed, I am rather fond of green beans and there are a few recipes on here for them.  Well here is another.  Green beans have many health benefits and are very delicious if cooked correctly.  Blanching makes the beans stay crunchy, but cooks them just enough to keep the flavor and colour.


500mg (1lb) green beans both ends trimmed

4 - 6 mushrooms sliced

2 cloves garlic crushed and chopped

1/4 red pepper cut into tiny cubes

2 T butter, ghee or coconut oil

In a large saucepan blanch the beans in boiling water for 3 1/2 minutes.  Rinse under cold water and set aside.  While waiting for the water to boil melt 1 T butter in a large skillet (frying pan) then add the garlic, saute for 1 minute and add the mushrooms, cook for 2 minutes and add the red pepper.  Make a space in the center of the pan and add the other tablespoon of oil, add the beans and mix with all the veggies, saute for 1 minute, then serve with main course of your choice.

Green beans are high in anti-oxidants,  they are very high in vitamin K which plays a crucial role in blood clotting and  bone metabolism, which is also a benefit of manganese which is also very high in green beans.  They also contain good amounts of vitamin C, fiber and many other essential vitamins and minerals.
