These sautéed green beans and mushrooms are the perfect way to sneak in more veggies to your mornings. Top them with some mashed avocado and some eggs and you’ve got yourself a killer breakfast!
I was all about breakfast sides during my Whole30. Like my crispy breakfast potatoes, which got me through the mornings where I just couldn’t face one more egg! But I did face that egg, because I got to enjoy it with some damn potatoes! And these sautéed green beans with mushrooms and onions – they were usually right there beside the potatoes.
I remember seeing a photo of beans and mushrooms together somewhere awhile back and thinking DAMN what an unbeatable combination. So I chopped some up, threw them in a pan and covered them in coconut aminos and the rest is history.
I make a big batch of these once a week, so I can easily reheat some for breakfast every other day. I don’t know about you guys but I’m all about the easy – especially when it comes to first thing in the morning! And these store well in an airtight container for up to 4 days (pretty sure they won’t last that long).
And although I’ve branded these a “breakfast side”, let’s be real – you could eat this at anytime of day. Serve them up with dinner for all I care. You rebel you.
