Green Bean Casserole (Vegan, Oil-free, & Gluten free)
This is my take on a green bean casserole. It's definitely not traditional, but it's delicious, easy to make, and my whole family loves it.
2 lbs steamed fresh or frozen green beans (You can use canned if you prefer, you will not need to steam them.)
12 oz steamed cauliflower
1/2 cup vegetable broth
2 medium yellow onions, diced
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (Use gluten free if desired)
1/2 tbsp tamari
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp + 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 350°F.
Heat a nonstick skillet to medium heat and add your diced onion. Stir occasionally so they don't stick. Add a splash of water if the onions begin to stick. Continue cooking your onions until they are brown and caramelized. Turn off the heat and add your breadcrumbs, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste, then mix well.
Add your steamed cauliflower, vegetable broth, tamari, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, then blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Mix your green beans and cauliflower sauce together then add to a oven safe pan. I used a 9x13 pan. Evenly cover your green beans with the onion and breadcrumb mixture.
Bake at 350°F for 30-40 minutes. Broil for 3-5 minutes after finished cooking if desired.
