Green bean casserole is a traditional American Thanksgiving dish which seems to appear out of nowhere during the fall and winter holidays. Year-round, you'd be hard pressed to find it anywhere, but around Thanksgiving, the winter holidays and Christmas time, it's suddenly everywhere. No Thanksgiving or Christmas table would be complete without a classic green bean casserole!
This recipe is for a vegetarian and completely dairy-free and vegan version of a traditional green bean casserole, using vegan margarine and nutritional yeast in place of milk, cream, or the usual canned mushroom soup, to create a creamy and saucy vegan green bean casserole which is completely dairy-free and suitable for anyone on a vegan diet, and, of course, it's also much lighter as far as fat and calories. So, if you're looking for a lighter and healthier green bean casserole for any reason, this vegan green bean casserole recipe will be a good one for you to try - and it's still creamy and delicious.
- 1/4 cup vegan margarine
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Optional: 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
- 2 (14-ounce) cans French-style green beans (well drained)
- 1 (3-ounce) can French-fried onions
Gather the ingredients and preheat the oven to 350 F.
In a small saucepan, melt the vegan margarine and add in the flour.
Add the vegetable broth, soy sauce or tamari, garlic powder and the onion powder, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens.
Whisk in the vegetable oil and nutritional yeast until fully combined.
Toss together the sauce and the green beans in a casserole dish or baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes.
Carefully remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the French fried onions on top of the casserole, then, return the pan to the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
- Swap out the soy sauce for tamari or gluten-free nama shoyu, and be sure that the vegetable broth you are using is gluten-free as well (some are and some aren't). And finally, you'll need to make sure you use a gluten-free flour in place of regular white flour, or, try using cornstarch as a thickener.
