Deconstructed Green Bean "Casserole"

Ingredient List
1 lb of fresh green beans, trimmed
1 lb white or crimini mushrooms, thinly sliced
4 shallots, sliced in thin rings
1 tbsp butter
1- 2 tbsp white wine
kosher salt to taste

Method
Peel and slice shallots as thinly as possible. Pour oil in small pot, about 1” in depth, heat over medium-high heat (until about 325 degrees, if you have a thermometer). Working in small batches, add shallots to oil and fry (about 1 – 1 ½ minutes). Remove from oil with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel to cool.


Once the shallots are cooling, cook green beans until tender in a separate pan.  As the green beans are cooking, add 1 tablespoon of butter to a sauté pan, and melt. Once the butter is nearly melted, add the sliced mushrooms to the butter to coat.  While constantly mixing the mushrooms, add 1 - 2 tablespoons of white wine to the mixture and salt to taste.  Continue stirring as mushrooms cook and become soft.



Add the mushroom mixture to the green beans.  When you serve your green beans, add the fried shallots as a topping & enjoy!
