Green Beans in Anchovy Sauce

Standard

FullSizeRender

Green beans are usually not my favorite vegetable, especially the “normal” ones! But in this case, I really enjoyed this recipe. I used the skinny tiny ones called “haricot vert” that I got at Trader Joe’s.

Ingredients:

1 package Haricot Verts

1/2 chopped onion

Sliced mushrooms – you can use as many as you like of whatever variety you like

2 cloves minced garlic

5 anchovy fillets, chopped

Directions:

Boil the haricot verts in some salted water until they are tender.

In the meantime, sauté the onion and garlic in some olive oil. Add the anchovy fillets and cook until the fillets “melt”.

Add the mushrooms and continue cooking until the mushrooms are browned.

When the beans are done, drain them reserving about 1/2 cup of the cooking water.

Add the beans to the onion/mushroom mixture along with the water.

Cook until the flavors have all blended together.
