Green Bean Casserole

I had good intentions to make enough food to get me through nearly a weeks worth of posts but I never got around to it.  I was able to throw together a nice recipe late in the evening that turned out very well.

This makes enough for your entire family to eat, twice.  If you want to make a smaller amount, half the recipe and use a pie baking dish!

Green Bean Casserole

1  3/4 pounds of french cut green beans
3 cups of unsweetened non-dairy milk
2 cups of french fried onions
1 cup of vegetable broth
1 cup of nutritional yeast
3 tablespoons of vegan sour cream
2 tablespoons of garlic powder
2 tablespoons of onion powder
1 tablespoon of salt
1 tablespoon of black pepper
1/2 tablespoon of corn starch

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a 13x 9 baking pan, add half of the green beans and half of the french friend onions.

In a mixing bowl, add the vegetable broth, non-dairy milk, sour cream, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, corn starch, and nutritional yeast and mix until smooth.  Use a blender if available.

Pour the liquid into the beans and stir.  Then add the remaining beans and french fried onions and gently mix again.  Bake for 1 hour and let sit for at least 30 minutes to thicken.

Before being vegan, I do not ever recall having green bean casserole so this was something I was unfamiliar with.  It came out rich and flavorful.

I would also like to know how do I "French fry" the onions.

totally going to have to make your green bean casserole. there are a lot of other green bean casserole recipes out there, but so many of them are overly complicated and have waaaay too many ingredients. i'm so excited to make this - it looks fantastical!

I've actually never had green bean casserole! I've always wanted to try it though, it sounds scrumptious.

Oh man, being from the Midwest, my parents used to make this ALL. THE. TIME. when I was growing up, and I hated it so much. Of course, it involved frozen green beans and cream of mushroom soup. A year ago, though, my brother made a vegan rendition, and I actually did like it! I should give your recipe a spin :)
