Truffled Green Beans

These green beans turned out SO delicious I just had to add them to the blog.  You could definitely use frozen green beans that you thaw first.  The frozen ones aren't as good, but they'll do when the fresh beans are out of season.

These green beans would be a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving dinner this year!!
Truffled Green Beans
1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed and washed
2 Tb butter
8 oz mushrooms, sliced
1/4 red onion, diced (or a shallot)
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt & pepper
2-3 tsp. truffle oil

Place green beans and a tablespoon of water in a glass bowl and microwave for 3-5 minutes until the green beans are just starting to cook a bit.  You want them to still be crisp.  In a saute pan melt the butter and saute the mushrooms and onions until browned and soft.  Add in the garlic and stir for a minute.  Add in the green beans and saute several minutes.  Season well with salt and pepper.  Drizzle in truffle oil and then taste for seasoning adjustment.  Enjoy.
