(Better Than The Original) Paleo Green Bean Casserole

Staying healthy is not about deprivation or restriction! I personally don’t do well with gluten, dairy, or soy, but there’s no way I’m going without my favorite dishes! So what do I do? I π˜”π˜–π˜‹π˜π˜π˜ .

This recipe is simple and uses whole foods instead of the heavily processed ingredients found in traditional green bean casserole recipes. It’s Paleo/Whole30 friendly, and free of gluten, dairy, corn, eggs, AND soy, for those with sensitivities!

1 lb fresh (destemmed) or frozen green beans (thaw before using frozen or they will release too much liquid)

8 ounce package organic fresh mushrooms (washed and diced)

2 small onions (one diced and the other thinly sliced)

1 cup cashews

2 cups of bone broth (regular broth or veggie broth works too)

4 garlic cloves, finely chopped (adjust to taste)

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon garlic powder

3-4 Tablespoons nutritional yeast (adjust to taste)

1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional, but adds a nice kick)

2 Tablespoons ghee, olive oil, or avocado oil

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste


Cover cashews in filtered water and allow to soak at least an hour (this helps them blend better later). Dump water and rinse before using.

Add 1 Tablespoon oil/ghee, diced onions, and mushrooms to a large skillet and sautΓ© over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Add garlic, a little salt and pepper, and reduce heat.

In a high speed blender (Nutribullet or Ninja work great), combine cashews, broth, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, lemon juice, and paprika. Blend until smooth and add salt/pepper to taste. Blend again and adjust seasoning.

Add cashew sauce to the pan with onions/mushrooms and cook over low, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Add more salt/pepper, if needed and remove from heat.

Add green beans to a 9×11 baking dish and cover with cashew/onion/mushroom mixture. Stir gently until combined.

Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes (depending on how well done you want the green beans).

While the mixture bakes, add the remaining ghee/oil to a pan and sautΓ© the sliced onion until caramelized.

When the casserole is finished baking, top with caramelized onions and serve!
