    Roast Potatoes and Prepare Ingredients

    Peel and cut sweet potatoes into 1" dice. Place on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Cook the Green Beans and Mushrooms

    Heat 3 Tbsp. water in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Once steam begins to appear, add green beans and cook until bright green and tender, 4-6 minutes. Transfer beans to one prepared casserole dish. For best results use an 8" dish. Wipe pan clean and place over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil, mushrooms, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Cook until browned and tender, 5-7 minutes.
