Green Bean Casserole (Dairy free, Egg free, Soy free, Gluten free, Vegan)



Thanksgiving is just one week away!  I love Thanksgiving and all of the family time with traditional favorite dishes crowding the table.  Something I haven’t yet made for Superman was Green Bean Casserole, so this year I’m adding it to my list of allergy-friendly holiday favorites!  This dish usually has cream of mushroom soup as it’s base, but making an easy “gravy” is a great substitute for the soup (and much healthier!)  If you’ve never made a gravy before, don’t sweat it.  Just follow the directions and you should be good to go.

I topped this recipe with pan toasted onions and crackers to make it easily gluten free.  If you’re not following a wheat & gluten free diet, then store bought french fried onions may work for your family.  Please read labels carefully to assure that they are safe.

My family really enjoyed taste testing this recipe, and I hope it finds a place on your holiday table.
