On the 17 Day Diet, it’s all about the non-starchy veggies like green beans!
I’ll be honest with you for a second, there’s only so many green beans I can eat before I need a serious flavor upgrade!
This Sauted Green Beans with Crimini Mushrooms recipe is the perfect upgrade!
It’s also perfect for your next holiday meal – I feature it in my Healthy Holiday Menu with Recipes blog post.
So if your family is begging you for the classic green bean casserole for your next holiday meal, this is a great alternative.
I say ditch the heavy green bean casserole and head to the land of yumminess with this fresh and tasty recipe for green beans.
I love using crimini mushrooms whenever a recipe calls for mushrooms. You can use any variety, but crimini are perfect in this dish!
I’d love to know how your holiday menu planning goes. If you make this dish dish, let me know how it turns out!
