The Green Bean Casserole Recipe
Prepare the Ingredients
To make this green bean casserole recipe, start by preparing the ingredients. You will need the following ingredients:
First, you need oil for frying. You can use vegetable oil if you prefer but make sure it is a very light one. Next, you need onions and bell pepper. These two ingredients are necessary to combine in the blender.
Put all the ingredients into the blender until they blend well. At this point, it is also advisable to add sea salt to the green bean casserole recipe. You can either buy sea salt from your local health store or you can find this online. Both are good choices. Salt makes the green bean casserole crispy and the spicy crunchy topping satisfies everyone’s taste buds.
The next ingredient that you should add is a dried port wine, which makes the entire dish more palatable. A good green bean casserole recipe will need a mushroom soup. The mushrooms in the soup to make the green bean casserole more flavorful, but you can leave them out of the green bean casserole recipe if you want. If there are Port wine chips or powdered packets in the soup, then you can also skip them as well.
If you have never cooked with mushrooms before, then you might want to begin by roasting them until they are about half way done. If you are using canned mushrooms, then simply soak these in water for 30 minutes to remove the liquid. You can then strain these to create a creamy soup. If you are using fresh mushrooms, then drain them and rinse them off before beginning your oven cooking. After your soup has been strained, add in the nutritional facts and any other ingredients that you want as long as they are low fat, high in nutrition, and of course vegan.
Next, you will want to drain your excess water from your beans. Most casseroles will have a top rack that runs downward, which means that you will need to drain the excess water first. If you are using dried mushrooms, drain them and discard the skin. Any remaining green beans can be placed on top of your baked casserole. If using white sauce, simply drain this first and discard the excess white sauce.
Lastly, you will want to heat up the oven. Once the oven begins to crackle, your green beans are cooked and ready to serve. Let the casserole cool down and enjoy. Make sure that you allow the frozen green beans to thaw out for a few more hours before cooking again. It is important to remember that this dish should be served as soon as possible because its nutritional value won’t be as much if it has been stored at room temperature for several days.
