Your holiday dinner just got healthy without the sacrifice of flavor. Meet the green bean casserole that makes spending time with family a little tastier!

Green bean casserole is a staple to many holiday parties, but a lot of the time it is loaded with fat and other unsavory preservatives. You can change that and make this delicious and healthier version of a family favorite. No one will miss the other version.

Green beans are loaded with fiber and full of essential vitamins like A, C, K, B6 and folic acid. Mushrooms add some delicious texture to this dish as well as provide protein, vitamin C, and iron. Almond milk adds creaminess to the dish and adds calcium, iron, potassium, and zinc.

Your holidays just became a lot healthier!

Prep Time

10 min


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Bring a medium pot of water to boil. Once the water is boiling, add salt. Add the beans and cook 5 to 6 minutes. Once done, drain and put into a large deep-dish pie pan.

Melt butter or warm olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until clear. Then add garlic and cook a minute longer. Sprinkle flour on top and whisk until veggies are coated. Cook 1 minute. Slowly add in broth and whisk until smooth. Add almond milk and season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium heat until mixture is thick. If the mixture is too thick, then add a little more almond milk.

Pour veggie mixture over beans and mix a little while in pan. Sprinkle with fried onions. Bake for 15 minutes or until bubbly. Serve immediately.
