Green Bean  Casserole

Several years ago, my sister, Jennie, and I almost walked out on Thanksgiving dinner. It wasn’t because the turkey was overdone or that we ran out of wine. No, it was a way bigger deal than that. My mom, for the first time that we could remember, did not make green bean casserole. We freaked. But we’re probably not the only ones who would miss this Thanksgiving classic. Green Bean Casserole is one of our most popular Thanksgiving side dishes.

Our healthier version skips the canned soup and all the fat and sodium that traditional recipes call for. Our white sauce with sliced fresh mushrooms, sweet onions and low-fat milk makes a creamy, rich casserole with tons of flavor. (Find more Thanksgiving recipes made healthier.)
