Green Bean Casserole

This is not your grandma’s green bean casserole…  fresh haricot verts, baby portobello mushrooms, crispy shallots, and a creamy parmesan sauce come together to make the most flavorful and delicious dish.

  • Thank you Michelle, My fam never really liked that old GB Casserole recipe anyway. This looks good, but I will have to leave out the mushrooms for Christina. I still love your Grandmas sweet potato recipe. Thanks for sharing Jeanne P.

    • Jeanne,
      I would suggest using 1 1/2lbs green beans to compensate for leaving out the mushrooms. Also, if you do not have almond flour for the topping, you could easily use finely chopped almonds, regular breadcrumbs or even panko breadcrumbs which will give it a nice crunch! (being that none of you are gluten free). I love that you use my Grandma’s sweet potato recipe, it really is amazing.

  • michelle i am newly diagnosed as having celiac desease.I was reading some of your posts and saw a recipe someone tried using you grandmothers sweet potatoe dish and wanted to know if you could send me that recipe or post it here again.thanks

  • Thank you SO much for this recipe. One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is Green Bean Casserole. Now I can have some.

  • This recipe was Fabulous for Thanksgiving this year! So much better than the standard green bean with cream of mushroom soup & fried onions. What a healthy alternative and so much appreciated by everyone at our table!

  • My partner and I made this recipe for a Thanksgiving potluck, and let me tell you, every single person there loved it! Thank you so much–it’s so delicious and on a whole other level than the usual green bean casserole. People raved!

  • Saw a recipe on your site for a pecan ? coffee cake , I thought ,when I
    first looked at your site and now can’t find it. Would you please post
    it again. Thanks so much.

  • Also, what kind of broth do you use in the green bean casserole ?
    Wonder if I can use chichen broth as I do not eat red meat or
    perhaps veggie broth would be best…

    • Hi Barbara,
      I used turkey broth, b/c I had just made a large batch. However, chicken or vegetable broth would both be suitable.

  • Hello Michelle,

    After surfing the Internet for autumn recipes for a bit, I stumbled across your blog. Let’s just say I am THRILLED to have found it! I have already bookmarked more than ten recipes, and so thankful to have found someone who can make healthy dishes that don’t sacrifice taste! My family and I have been making the switch to whole-foods for some time now, but have found that some recipes lack luster. Yours are brilliant. Thank you so much, and keep posting!

  • What kind of greek yogurt did you use. Do you make your own. I know on SCD it is supposed to be fermented for 24 hrs. Just curious. The recipe looks delicious.

  • Howdy! Someone in my Myspace group shared this site with us so I came to check it out.
    I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my
    followers! Wonderful blog and wonderful design and style.
