Green Beans With Mushrooms And Bacon
These green beans taste just like the ones my grand-mother made during my childhood in the Midwest. I’ve made it easier and healthier than her recipe, though, adding mushrooms and using just a few slices of bacon to add a salty and smoky flavor. The green beans need only 2 minutes of cooking time at high pressure, making this recipe a snap.

Recipe Notes

MEAL PREP TIP: Don’t skip the lemon juice in this dish. It locks in the beans’ green color and adds a nice bright flavor to the dish. GLUTEN-FREE OPTION: Make sure the vegetable broth is gluten-free. Some broths are made using gluten products.
