This Vegan Green Bean Casserole takes only 40 minutes! It’s easy, creamy, completely delicious and gluten free!
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!! I hope you guys are eating lots of yummy food today! This recipe seems to be perfectly timely, since while I love green beans all year round, this Green Bean Casserole is definitely going to need a spot at your Thanksgiving day (American or Canadian, I’m generous friends). You guys have been asking me to remake classic Thanksgiving recipes, so of course I’ve been working hard to do that. Eating all the things. Today I remade a classic green bean casserole, veganised, made it gluten free, and obvi keep it so delicious for you.
Oh yeah, I made those baked onion rings for you so that you can make them ALL the time. This is a dangerous trick to know.
Before making this, I’ve had green bean casserole versions in Whole Foods and I’ve always enjoyed them. I’m personally a huge fan of a crispier green bean casserole – making it on a stove top, so that the beans are dunked in that swoon-worthy sauce but never mushy. That crisp really resonates with me. While we were making this, I kept eating the greens plain, just blanched, straight from the colander. The Mr. gave me a lot of weird looks.
What can I say? Some days I like to devour plain green beans, other days I like to eat a whole, er, slice of chocolate cake. Balance, friends.
This green bean casserole elicits true balance. On one hand, that sauce is so creamy. Those onion rings are heavenly and you will, 100%, eat them from the pan and end up with less for your casserole so please make extra. Speaking from experience here people. On the other hand, the onion rings are baked, not fried, and the casserole sauce uses healthier ingredients. You get to indulge without any insane guilt. It’s pretty perfect, right?
Here’s to balance!
I couldn’t choose a favourite part of this casserole – I love every single bit, and they all come together beautifully. The mushrooms in the casserole that add a meaty touch. The crisp, green beans that brighten it up and taste fresh and delicious. That SAUCE tho. A silky combination of roasted garlic (PRO tip: always have some in the fridge), coconut milk, vegan butter and gf flour.
Also well, of course, those onion rings. THOSE onion rings.
You can always buy onion rings, I’ll be honest. But the satisfaction that comes from making onion rings from scratch cannot be beat friends. The best part is that it is as easy as battering, and baking. Simple.
I promise you will love this casserole. It’s a green bean casserole made from scratch, in 40 minutes, with all the fixings, that you’ll be looking forward to having as leftovers. Enjoy, friends!
