Vegan Green Bean Casserole

Good morning :)

It is a BIG day in the running world today…the legendary Boston Marathon is going on this morning! Good luck to all the athletes!

Now onto last night’s dinner…

Eric has made me this recipe before and we absolutely loved it! I have been wanting to make it again for a long time.


Vegan Green Bean Casserole

Adapted from Fat Free Vegan Kitchen.

I thought I would just point out the modifications that I made to it and then you can visit Susan’s wonderful website for the full recipe.

I made a lot of modifications to this recipe based on what ingredients I had on hand. You can either follow my version or the original version. The original version is richer and the version I made last night is lighter. Both were good!

My modifications:

Recipe calls for: I used instead:
3/4 cup soy creamer 1.25 cup almond milk
2 tbsp flour 1/4 cup spelt flour + 1 tbsp chia flour
Dry sherry I omitted
Whole Grain Bread Ezekiel bread
1 3-ounce can of French fried onions Didn’t have any, but I did miss them


I used almond milk for this recipe. In order to thicken up the sauce like soy creamer would, I doubled the flour and added some chia flour. The sauce got so thick I had to keep adding more milk! Next time I would probably reduce the flour to 3 tbsp. It was a nice thick sauce though!


Also note that the garlic and seasonings are essential in this sauce. Without it, the sauce is very bland.

The lighter version turned out delicious!

Eric is a big fan of this recipe…except for the mushrooms! Eric hates mushrooms and will not eat them if his life depended on it. He picked his out and I ate them all. :)

brussel sprouts and artichoke hearts in the jar look like brains to me ;D

Love that little motivational saying by Oprah Winfrey! I posted that on my SparkPeople web page. Thanks Angela!

As for the green bean casserole, yummy again! I’ll have to try that one during the holidays.

The one vegetable I don’t much like and I don’t think it’s a veggie, it’s more like a legume are lima beans. I’ll eat snap peas but I’m not a big fan.

I’d never had Kale until the Green Monster movement, but I don’t like the smell of it when steamed.

So I have a yummy way to eat Kale…got it out of February’s Vegetarian Times and just modified. Take approx. 3 inch long kale leaves and drizzle with olive oil and salt (or kosher salt). Bake at 350 for like 7 mins then flip for a few more until they are crispy. I found that they actually tasted a tad like potato chips! But not the, um, later belches. LOL!
