Green Bean Casserole

20160813_091917-1-400x225This recipe was created after talking with my mom about holiday menus and trying to re-make recipes that I could enjoy with the other guests.  I always loved the way it had little crispy onions on the top but still bubbled with buttery sauce in the oven right before it was done cooking.  Green Bean casseroles pop up at all kinds of holiday gatherings from Thanksgiving to Rosh Hashanah, and they are an easy side dish to make.  My version of this casserole is super simple to make and uses straight forward ingredients such as gluten free breadcrumbs, non-dairy butter, shallots, and green beans.  Add in a few spices and some oil and you have yourself a gluten free, dairy free, egg free, soy free, delicious green bean casserole that you and your guests will love.

Ingredients
  1. 1 bag of organic frozen french cut green beans
  2. ½ of a medium shallot – chopped into small pieces
  3. 2 tbsp of olive oil
  4. 2 tbsp of non dairy butter (I use Earth Balance Coconut Spread)
  5. ½ cup of gluten free bread crumbs (I use my homemade ones, but you can use store bought if you want)
  6. Handful of chopped fresh parsley (can use 1 tbsp of dried parsley instead)
  7. Olive oil or coconut oil cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray a square or round dish for baking in the oven.
  3. Pour the frozen green beans into the baking dish right from the freezer.
  4. Chop up your shallot and sprinkle the pieces over the top of the green beans.
  5. Cut your non-dairy butter into ¼ to ½ inch pieces and sprinkle them around so that when it melts in the oven, it will be evenly distributed. Do the same thing with your fresh parsley.
  6. Using a spoon, distribute the bread crumbs across the top so there is a thin layer of bread crumbs on top of the green beans and shallots. You’ll still be able to see some of the green beans, but it will be mostly covered by bread crumbs.
  7. Now drizzle your olive oil over the top of the bread crumbs.
  8. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until the bread crumbs start to look more golden brown. The dish should bubble a little bit around the edges and on the bottom.
Notes
  1. This dish is a wonderful substitute for the traditional green bean casserole served at Thanksgiving. It is non-dairy so many people like to use it for kosher dinners as well; be sure to check that your ingredient choices have a kosher symbol on them.
