Green Bean Casserole
  • 3 cups mushroom sauce
  • 0.5 lbs green beans
  • ½ cup fried onions
Fried onion rings
  • 4-5 shallots (sliced)
  • 2 tbsp tapioca flour

Directions

  1. To prepare the mushroom sauce heat avocado oil in a medium sized pan. Over medium to high heat saute onions and garlic for about 2 minutes until onions are translucent.
  2. Add mushrooms and saute for another 5 minutes until mushrooms begin to brown.
  3. Deglaze with white wine, add vegetable stock, milk, parsely, almond pulp, salt and pepper and simmer for about 15-20 minutes over low heat.
  4. Take out 2 tbsp of the mushroom sauce and mix with one tbsp of tapioca starch. Add tapioca mixture back in the sauce and simmer for another 2 minutes (while stirring) until sauce thickens up. Set aside for the casserole.
  5. Preheat oven to 350F.
  6. To prepare the casserole steam green beans for about 10-15 minutes or cook in boiling water for about 5-10 minutes.
  7. Transfer green beans into a 9 inch diameter baking dish about 2-3 inches deep. Pour mushroom sauce over the beans and bake in the oven for about 25-30 minutes.
  8. In the meantime, evenly coat onions with tapioca flour in a small bowl and fry in vegetable oil.
  9. Once the casserole is done garnish with fried onions, parsley and serve while still warm. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
