Green bean casserole
For many, green bean casserole has always been a staple at Thanksgiving meals. Even as a vegetarian you can still enjoy the “traditional” version of green bean casserole. Now you can bring the classic back to the table with this incredible vegan recipe that everyone will enjoy.
It is preferred to use as many fresh ingredients as possible, but if you are pressed for time use a can or a bag of frozen green beans and canned mushrooms. For the French fried onions, you can use French’s from the canister, depending on your vegan beliefs. The ingredients are vegan but are made on equipment that processes milk products. If you are feeling brave and ambitious, there are many recipes out there to make your own French fried onions.
Enjoy this dish alongside your friends and family this Thanksgiving. And give a toast to another meat-free holiday with some Yellow Tail Shiraz—it’s vegan, too.
