  • Summary

    This delicious green bean casserole is loaded with fresh green beans and mushrooms (no canned ingredients here). I took one shortcut with the topping and used crushed high-quality potato chips instead of fried onions. That means this recipe is significantly easier to make than home-fried onions, and it’s easy to make it gluten free. Recipe yields 6 to 8 side servings.

    Ingredients

    • 2 ½ teaspoons salt, divided
    • 1 ½ pounds fresh green beans, rinsed, trimmed and halved
    • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter or olive oil
    • ¾ cup chopped shallot (2 to 3 medium shallots)
    • 12 ounces cremini (baby bella) mushrooms, rinsed free of debris, trimmed and cut into ½-inch pieces
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
    • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
    • 3 tablespoons flour (I used whole wheat, use all-purpose gluten-free flour for gluten-free casserole)
    • 2 cups vegetable broth
    • ½ cup half-and-half
    • 1 to 1 ½ cups crushed Kettle Brand Organic Potato Chips with Sea Salt
