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
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the water and bouillon cubes until cubes are completely dissolved. Stir and set aside.
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.
Add the flour and mix to form a thick paste. Allow to cook, stirring, 1-2 minutes until golden.
Add the bouillon broth, stir, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Season with dried oregano and ground pepper.
Use a whisk to gently mix the gravy until it thickens to your desired consistency (about 15 minutes).
Stir in 1 bag of frozen green beans.
Transfer to a large cast-iron skillet and top with fried onions.
Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and serve warm.
