Green Bean Casserole

by Jill Dalton

Green Bean Casserole is a staple dish at any midwestern potluck or holiday table. I know for sure that it was one of my mom’s favorite side dishes. This recipe is a cleaner version of that same dish. By cleaner I mean, it is void of dairy, and canned cream of mushroom soup that is typically in this dish. I have replaced those ingredients with healthier plant based ingredients so that it isn’t just delicious, it is also very good for you.

I made this and it was delicious! The only thing I did differently was I added an onion to it! So flavourful and satisfying. Great recipe. I would have attached a pic but couldn’t figure out how lol
