Ingredients

  • 1 lb. haricots verts (or regular green beans)
  • 2 slices whole-wheat bread
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • 1 ½ oz. (about 6 Tbsp) grated parmesan cheese, divided

Instructions

  • Bring a large saucepan filled with water to a boil. Cook beans for about 3 minutes (a minute or two longer if not using haricot verts) or until crisp-tender. Plunge beans into ice water to stop cooking and drain well.

  • Stir stock, milk, and sherry into the skillet and bring to a simmer. Cook for about 3 minutes.
  • Remove skillet from heat and stir in remaining 4 Tbsp parmesan, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Add beans to pan and toss to coat in mushroom/onion mixture.
  • Sprinkle skillet with breadcrumb mixture and place under broiler for 2 minutes.
