How to make this Vegan Green Bean Casserol

Step 1: Make the sauce

First start by heating the oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Then add the onion and garlic and cook for about 2-3 minutes.

Next add in the mushrooms, salt, and pepper and let cook for another 3-5 minutes or until browned. Then add in the flour and stir to coat the veggies. Slowly whisk in the vegetable stock and then in the almond milk. Bring to a slow simmer, reduce heat to low and let cook for another 5-7 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.

Step 2: Add green beans and bake

Chop the green beans and add to the sauce. Stir to coat evenly. Transfer to an 8×8-inch baking dish. Top with the fried onions and bake in the oven for about 10-15 minutes, or until bubbly and browned on top.

Serve hot and enjoy!
