Not Your Mother’s Green Bean Casserole


Gluten Free Green Bean Casserole Sick of cream of mushroom soup and fried onions in your green bean casserole?  This original version is miles away from tradition.  With goat cheese and a honey-balsamic sauce, this may get your taste buds up and dancing.  It is definitely  my new favorite.

    1. I think it would be fun to have a buffet of different green bean casseroles. I’d probably still love Mom’s best, if I could eat it, but for now, I will stick with this new one.

  1. It took me well over 20 years to start eating green beans… I found out that if you don’t like a particular vegetable, add cheese and bacon to it… that should do. 😀

    1. Cheese and bacon cure almost all food problems. I can only think of one or two things that I still wouldn’t eat covered in them. Glad you are a green bean eater at last :-)

  2. I really don’t understand the love of green bean casserole. I never had it growing up. My first experience was a very confusing one and I remember wondering why it was so well loved? I have grown to love it over the last few years as my mom or my brother has been making it for our Thanksgiving table. That is one way to get me to enjoy something. :-)

    Green bean casserole or not, I appreciate this gluten free version! I have green beans in my freezer. We will enjoy this! Thank you and I hope you have a very enjoyable Thanksgiving!
