    Ribbon Green Beans and Mushrooms in Garlic Sauce

    Green Beans and Mushrooms in Garlic Sauce
    4 to 5 oz green beans
    Kosher salt
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    1 large garlic clove, smashed and peeled
    1/8 tsp fresh grated nutmeg
    1/2 cup cooked sliced or quartered mushrooms -- about 4 ounces raw
    Garnish
    1 large shallot, peeled and sliced thin
    1 tablespoon rice flour or Wondra (or all-purpose flour)
    Vegetable oil for frying
    Trim the beans and cut into halves or thirds (pieces about 1-1/2 inches). Fill a medium sized saucepan with water and add about 1 tsp of salt per quart of water. Bring to a boil and blanch the green beans for 5 minutes for crisp-tender beans or 6-7 minutes for completely tender beans. Drain and rinse under cold water. Return the beans to the pan.
    Meanwhile, pour the cream into a small saucepan and add the garlic clove. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce the heat and continue to simmer until reduced by about half. Discard the garlic and add a pinch of salt and the nutmeg.

    Add the mushrooms to the green beans. Pour about half the cream over the vegetables and toss, adding more if necessary to coat evenly. Adjust seasoning. Set aside until you're ready to serve.
    For the garnish, toss the shallot slices in the flour, shaking off the excess. Heat about 1/2 inch of the oil in a small skillet until it shimmers and flows easily. To test the temperature, add one of the shallot slices to the hot oil. It should bubble vigorously -- if not, heat for another minute or so. When the oil is hot, add the shallot pieces all at once and stir until they're golden brown and crisp. Remove from the oil and drain on a paper towel for a few minutes, until cool. Place in a bowl and set aside until service.
    When you're ready to serve, reheat the beans and mushrooms gently over medium low heat. Top with the crispy shallots.
    If you're using a gratin dish, cover it with foil and heat in a 350F oven for about 20 minutes or until bubbling and hot. Remove the foil and top with the shallots. Bake for another 5 minutes to re-crisp the shallots.
