I’m going to make this short and sweet because 1). I’m in Indiana currently to visit my mom and 2). It’s my birthday, so needless to say, I have birthday cake to make and snow coating the ground to watch. Sorry Healthy Green Bean Casserole, you’re not getting much of an intro because I gots things to do. But I will say that this is a MUST MAKE for Thanksgiving dinner.
It’s unbelievable and if I could indulge in mushrooms at this time of my new diet I totally would stuff my face with this dish (screw Thanksgiving, I’d eat it tonight!) It is so flavorful and so creamy despite the fact that it is dairy free, no one and I mean no one at your dinner table would ever guess that it is actually vegan.
May you be blessed with vegan green bean casserole this season and may your children grow to love this lusty dish that will spread the holiday cheer without having to say a word.

Amen, amen, and amen. Now if you’ll excuse me I have Paleo Chocolate Cake to bake, enjoy and savor every bite. While I do that, next week you have this entire gluten free Thanksgiving spread to look forward to!
This recipe turned out SO delicious! I had to make a few substitutions, because I was missing a few ingredients (small red onion instead of shallots, doubled the nutritional yeast because I like it cheesy, and about half the mushrooms).
Highly recommend it!
Happy Birthday!! I hope it was a good one!

Looks delicious Cara! Love how easy it is and I have never seen an un-baked green bean casserole. I may just try this on Thanksgiving, although my hubby can’t have mushrooms, so maybe I’ll just add more green beans or heck, maybe even potatoes, haha!
I have never seen an unbake casserole either but the day that I was making this, I realized that I had no room in the oven so I had to think fast on my feet 🙂 ha. Love those kinds of moments, right? Potatoes would be delicious with this. Better yet, just smother them with your homemade gravy 🙂 xo
Happy Birthday!!! I hope your enjoying yourself. Have a great day I love your recipe version yum!
Thank you friend!
There is no butter or oil to saute the shallots and garlic in? Is this an error?
Also, this is not baked in the oven as traditional gr. bean dishes are?
I fixed it Joan 🙂 And not a traditional green bean casserole. It’s a great way to make more room in your oven!
this is absolutely perfect! i am absolutely making this for thanksgiving!
YAY! Enjoy 🙂
Oh la la! Take that condensed soup can! I looooooathed green bean casserole because I hated the yucky grey mess on top of it. This looks amazing however (as usual!). Where did you get your plates? They are beautiful. PS Happy Birthday!!
Thanks lady, you are so sweet for the birthday wishes. I got the majority of the plates at Target but those cute lace- edge small plates I got at Hobby Lobby.
Happy birthday, Cara!! Finally 21, eh? The green beans look delicious, I can’t wait for Thanksgiving. Enjoy your visit with your mom and the snow, sunny Cali will here at 75 degree weather when you get back!
Thank you Jane! YES, I can finally drink now that I’m legal
Hooray! Just in time for Thanksgiving! Pinned. 🙂
Thank you Laura!
Sounds delish! I am not a fan of mushrooms so have always steered clear of this dish in its original form. Could I leave them out?
You can definitely omit the mushrooms, no problems.
