Green Bean Mushroom Casserole (Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Vegan)

Print

I want to share with you this dairy and gluten-free green bean and mushroom casserole with a crunchy onion sesame topping. It’s just as rich and creamy as the traditional version, if not more, and hard to believe it’s free of heavy cream and dairy in general. But besides the delicious taste and the wholesome ingredients, what I love most about this dish is that it’s a wonderful and simple make-ahead meal, perfect for holiday parties.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

I can't wait for Thanksgiving just so I can share this vegan green bean mushroom casserole! Often times, "healthy" sides are loaded with fat, sodium, sugar and calories, almost acting as full meals on their own. This is a great alternative to traditional green bean casserole. Each serving packs 5g of fiber and 9g of protein, plus, it is low in sodium and carbs!
