Directions

  1. Fill a medium saucepan three-fourths full with water. Bring to a boil, covered, over high heat. Cook the green beans, uncovered, for 5 minutes, or until tender-crisp. Drain well in a colander.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the mushrooms, onion, garlic, and salt for 5 minutes, or until the mushrooms are soft and lightly browned, stirring frequently. Stir in the lemon juice, pepper, and cooked green beans.
