I decided to make a recipe from Rachel Ray’s Magazine last night for dinner. It looked so good and I had bought fresh green beans. The original recipe called for Green Beans, Mushrooms, Almonds, Butter and Seasoning. Of course I was sure I had Mushrooms in the cabinet and thought the almonds probably were too.
When I started the butter melting I looked for the Mushrooms – none. 🙁 So I needed to substitute. Here’s what I ended up making:
- Melt some Butter
- Dice Onions and then brown in the butter.
- Add a little pepper (for taste) – the recipe called for salt also but I add salt to nothing…. We get enough salt in everything else (My butter was probably salted even)
- While doing that Blanch Green Beans – Turns out this means boil them for three minutes in hot water.
- Add the Green Beans to the Onions in the pan and cook until taste done. I think it was about 5 minutes for me and I had them on about medium temp.
Then I just put them in a bowl to serve. We ate the whole batch!
