Green beans are in season right now.  They are great on their own but this dish ramps up the flavor.  These caramelized little onions really give this dish a nice flavor.



  • 1 Pound small onions (Pearl or Cipollini)
  • 2 Pounds green beans
  • 12 ounces Cremini mushrooms
  • ½ Cup minced Shallots
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1/3 cup vegetable broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat a large non-stick pan on high heat.  When hot add several tablespoons of water.  Immediately add onions and sauté until golden brown.  About 35 minutes.  Remove from pan and hold till later.
  2. Meanwhile bring a large pot of water to a boil (or steam them).  Cook beans until bright green and tender.  About 10 minutes.  Drain.
  3. Heat frying pan again in the same manner, add mushrooms and cook till they start to brown and crisp.  About 10 minutes.  Now add shallots, thyme, salt, pepper, and the reserved onions.  Cook until shallots are soft.  Add broth and bring to a simmer.
  4. Meanwhile rewarm beans and transfer to serving platter.  Pour mushroom mix over center of beans

Cooking the onions.  Remember that I’m using no oil.  So the key is a very hot pan.






You can see the steam from the water as soon as I put it in.  The pan is very hot





Cooking until done






Plated nicely.

About Dr. Tina

Hi, I am a 55-year-old Traditional Naturopath & Nutritionist who is passionate about health. After all, without health what do we have? We all have one life to live and why not live that life to the fullest. We are all going to age and we are all going to die. I am concerned with how we live and how we age. Existing is not an option for me and it should not be for you. I want to thrive. I want to feel vibrant and full of energy every day. There is no reason why we should be limited in the things we do because of our age, if we care for our precious health. When we are plagued by illness or even annoyed my minor symptoms of dis-ease we are not thriving. I know that our bodies can heal themselves. Sometimes they just need a little help from nature.
