I promise, this is REALLY delicious! Your stomach will thank you later for skipping out on the milk.
- One 10oz bag of frozen mushrooms (or can use fresh and cook beforehand)
- One 15oz bag of frozen French cut green beans
- ½ cup of pre-soaked raw cashews (soak 4+ hrs & rinse)
- ½ cup of Almond Milk (can substitute with water)
- 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 finely chopped onion
- 3 cloves of garlic minced (use more if you like)
- ¼ cup of white wine (I prefer Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay)
- 1 Tablespoon of Coconut Aminos (or soy sauce)
- ¼ teaspoon of nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon of salt & black pepper (I just eyeball it and crack it in)
- One 6oz container of French’s Crispy Fried Onions
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
- Unthaw frozen mushrooms or slice & cook fresh ones.
- Boil or steam French cut green beans – just until they’re tender.
- Blend cashews with almond milk and set aside. I use a Vitamix, but a NutriBullet will work.
- Sauté onion and garlic in a large skillet for 3-5 minutes. Add in mushrooms. Pour in white wine & Coconut Aminos. Mix in cashew/almond milk. Mix in nutmeg, salt and pepper. Drain the green beans and add to mixture. Let simmer for a 1-2 minutes.
- Pour mixture into 9 x 13 greased pan
- Mix in half of French’s Crispy Fried Onions
- Bake for 30 minutes. Add remainder of crispy friend onions. Bake an additional 5 minutes or until onions are golden.
- You can prep this 1-3 days before baking & store in the refrigerator, but don’t mix in French’s crispy fried onions until you’re ready to cook.
- If you like the casserole to be more “soupy”, double everything but the green beans, mushrooms, and crispy fried onions.
- If you want this to be grain free, you can leave out the French’s crispy onions. It’s still really good without them.
JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, sinus problems, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are. Food elimination diets are a great way to figure out what your triggers are.
