Green Beans with Mushrooms, Balsamic and Parmesan

Vickie Parks


I like this as a side dish when we have grilled steak or a marinated flank steak. The balsamic and Parmesan touch really adds a lot of flavor.

    olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp

How to Make Green Beans with Mushrooms, Balsamic and Parmesan


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F/230°C.
  2. Put beans, mushrooms and onion into a large zip-lock bag (or a large mixing bowl).
  3. Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and shake bag until vegetables are well coated.
  4. Arrange vegetables on a large baking sheet, spreading them out so beans and mushrooms aren't too crowded. Roast in oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until beans are tender-crisp and all liquid from the mushrooms has evaporated. Sprinkle chopped basil and grated Parmesan cheese on top, and serve immediately.
