Green Bean Un-Casserole

Green Bean Un-Casserole

Healthy and satisfying replacement to the traditional casserole.

I’ve never been a fan of the gelatinous goop with deep-fried onions on top –  also known as the traditional green bean casserole served on Thanksgiving.

I love green beans. A lot. And I don’t prefer them swimming in goop. Thankfully, neither does the hubby! 🙂

This recipe is full of flavor and leaves us feeling satisfied, not wishing we’d never eaten. Why not lighten up your table with a quick and easy recipe this year?
