Green Beans with Garlicky Shiitakes

When in doubt, make a side dish full of veggies and garlic! This was really easy to put together and very flavorful. I really liked the salty, creamy addition of fresh Parmesan at the end, and the meatiness of the shiitakes worked great with the beans. My only note is that there was a lot of liquid, which I tried to simmer down a bit. I’d probably use less vegetable stock next time – maybe only 1/4 cup.
