I liked this very much. The roasting of the beans gives them a savory flavor, and I like the ideas for toppings to keep it low in calories. I used leeks as had some to use up and just a few mushrooms to use them as well. Used all the suggested herbs, and liked one reviewer used a some slivered almonds so I did just a tab of those, and a tab of seasoned panko crumbs. Very good would make again.
I stumbled across this review with 30 minutes to table time on Thanksgiving Day. I had a bag of whole frozen green beans, no time to roast them, and none of the traditional green bean casserole ingredients. While the beans were steaming, I made the sauce per recipe. The only change I made at the end was to use half the amount of gluten free bread crumbs (all I had) mixed with 1/2 cup thinly sliced almonds. The casserole baked until bubbly and toasty brown on top-with 1 minute to spare. Needless to say, that dish was scraped completely clean before everyone got seconds, and three people asked me for the recipe. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Great alternative to unhealthy traditional green bean casserole! I was skeptical to try this recipe at first because of the lack of reviews and popularity, but I am so glad I did! It was delicious! It is very similar to traditional green bean casserole, only made with real ingredients and a GREAT healthy alternative! If you don't like crunchy green beans you can steam them instead of roasting them. I recommend this recipe and it will be featured in this year's Eat Smart Move More Maintain don't gain Holiday Challenge!
