FOR THE CHEESE, BEAT:
FOR THE BEANS, BLANCH:
The leftover herbed cheese makes a fabulous dip. Put it out with raw veggies for a casual holiday appetizer.
For the cheese, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth using a hand mixer. Add Beau Monde, garlic, fines herbes, water, vinegar, and Worcestershire; beat until smooth. Season cheese with salt and white pepper; chill until firm.
Add blanched beans; sauté to heat through, 4 minutes, tossing often. Season beans and mushrooms with salt and black pepper.
Transfer beans and mushrooms to a serving dish and top with cheese.
