Thank you to Sprouts (the best grocery store) for sponsoring this recipe!

For the past 13 years, I’ve been hosting an annual vegan Friendsgiving potluck the weekend after Thanksgiving. It’s a way for my friends to try new recipes, gather, and share a plant-based nourishing-to-the-body-and-soul meal together. This year, the recipe that I’ve been trying to perfect for our potluck is the Green Bean Casserole. I wanted it to be a combination of down-right-tasty, but also a recipe that doesn’t require hours in the kitchen. This is what I came up with!

I did all my shopping at Sprouts, they had everything I needed, including the fried onions– which I thought I was going to have to make from scratch. I used the Sprouts organic frozen green beans as the center of this dish so that I could remove a step of having to cook them myself.



  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 vegetable bouillon cubes
  • 3 ½ tablespoons of vegetable or canola oil
  • ½ cup of yellow onion, diced
  • 1 ½ cups of cremini mushrooms, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 ½ tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 1 bag of frozen green beans
  • 1 (6-ounce) package of fried onions


Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 2

In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the water and bouillon cubes until cubes are completely dissolved. Stir and set aside.

Step 3

Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat, then add the onions, mushrooms, and garlic. Saute until onions for about 3 to 4 minutes or until they are translucent and tender.

Step 4

Add the flour and mix to form a thick paste. Allow to cook, stirring, 1-2 minutes until golden.

Step 5

Add the bouillon broth, stir, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Season with dried oregano and ground pepper.

Step 6

Use a whisk to gently mix the gravy until it thickens to your desired consistency (about 15 minutes).

Step 7

Stir in 1 bag of frozen green beans.

Step 8

Transfer to a large cast-iron skillet and top with fried onions.

Step 9

Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and serve warm.
