“Ok, so I had these ingredients on hand and man-oh-man did this dinner turn out tasty! My 2 1/2 year old ate it up and her parents were oh so happy as well. A sure fire (EASY!) dinner to throw together. *Add some rotisserie chicken or chopped up breaded chicken breasts and your fam will swoon!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam green beans for about 5 minutes in a pot of boiling water with a steaming basket in place.
  2. In another pan, over medium heat, slightly toast almonds until golden brown- about 5 minutes.
  3. In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, melt butter and oil together and place mushrooms into oil. Do not move until golden brown- this is important- they need to caramelize to be oh-so-yummy! -About 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add garlic to pan and mix mushrooms. Sauté for another 5 minutes. Be careful not to burn garlic! -Reduce heat if necessary.
  5. Add steamed green beans, garlic, soy sauce, salt, pepper and juice from 1/2 lemon.

  7. Season, to taste.
  8. Optional: add chopped chicken and serve in warm bowls.
