  1. Blanch the green beans in salted boiling water for 3-5 minutes, just until they are tender but still crisp. Drain and run under cold water. Set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil in a wide sauté pan over a medium high-heat. Add the shallots and thyme and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to turn golden, about 5-8 minutes.
  3. Add the sliced mushrooms and some salt. Sauté until the mushrooms lose their water and begin to wilt. Add the cider vinegar, and continue to cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the cooked green beans to the mushrooms and cook over medium high until the beans are heated through. Taste for seasoning then serve topped with toasted almonds.

Chef Tips

If in a hurry, use frozen whole green beans. Cook them straight from the freezer and they’ll have all the taste and nutrients of fresh.
