Vegan Green Bean Casserole

This dish is apart of my Thanksgiving recipe collection. It is a deliciously creamy green bean casserole with a selection of mushrooms, top with crispy fried onions and a pinch of salt. Check out my vegan “Meatloaf” and Creamy Mash Potatoes with Chives if you are looking to pair this with something else.

Ingredients:

  • 600g green beans.
  • 200ml mushroom stock (made from hydrating dried chanterelle).
  • 200ml vegetable stock.
  • 1-2 garlic clove
  • 200g white/chestnut mushrooms.
  • 2 Tbs of cornstarch (mixed with 3 tbs of water).
  • 150g mixed mushrooms (I had porcini and chanterelle).
  • 500ml of soy cream.
  • 100g grated vegan mozzarella.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.

Method:

  1. First, preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F). Then, heat up some water to soak the dried chanterelle mushrooms (for the stock).
  2. Next, prepare the vegetables by removing the ends of the green beans, cut them into halves and dice the mushrooms.
  3. Then, add the mushrooms and green beans into a big pot. Cover them with the mushroom and vegetable stock. Let it boil for three minutes. Note: remember to season with salt and pepper.
  4. Next, drain out just over half of the stock from the mushrooms and green beans.
  5. Then, mix in the soy cream, corn starch slurry and grated garlic in a bowl.
  6. Now, mix in the cream mixture into the pot and then, pour the contents of the pot into a casserole dish.  Top it with the grated vegan mozzarella and then season it. Place it in the oven for 25 minutes. Note: reseason at this point.
  7. Time to fry some onions!
  8. Now, slice the onions into thin strips. Coat them with cornstarch, flour and a sprinkle of salt.
  9. Then, preheat a frying pan with a generous amount of oil. Keep the heat on medium and fry the onions until golden brown. Place them onto a paper towel to help get rid of any excess oil.
  10. Finally, take the casserole dish out of the oven and top it with the fried onions. Enjoy!fullsizeoutput_123.jpeg

  1. Thanks for posting this! I will have to give it a try! I usually do asparagus casserole but I have been looking for a good green bean casserole not made from processed “cream of soup.” Looks delish!
