Today’s WINNING recipe to meet Coach JC’s 10 WINNING Habits is Healthy Green Bean Casserole. Where are my veggies?
Heaping ½ cup raw cashews, soaked for 4 hours or overnight
½ cup unsweetened almond milk
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
3 tbsp whole grain bread crumbs (sub gluten-free bread crumbs for gluten-free)
3 tbsp gluten-free oat flour (or flour of choice)
2½ tsp salt (divided)
2 lbs frozen cut green beans
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2-8oz packages sliced mushrooms, chopped
⅛ tsp ground nutmeg
1 tbsp soy sauce (sub tamari for gluten-free)
¼ cup dry white wine
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Place cashews in a bowl and cover with water. Soak for at least four hours or overnight.
Blend soaked cashews with almond milk in a blender or food proccessor (I used my nutribullet) until completely smooth and creamy. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 475F.
Place onions, bread crumbs, flour and 1 tsp salt in a large bowl, tossing to combine. Be sure to separate each individual onion piece. Spread onions in an even layer on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray or lined with a silipat. Spray onions once again with cooking spray. Bake for 25 minutes, tossing halfway through. Once onions are done cooking, remove from oven and lower oven heat to 350F for casserole.
Bring a large pot with two inches of water to a boil. Once boiling add green beans. Bring back to a boil and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until tender. Drain and run cold water over green beans to stop cooking. Set aside.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Once hot, add onion. Cook for five minutes and then add garlic and mushrooms. Cook for another ten minutes, stirring often. Add nutmeg, soy sauce, white wine, 1½ tsp salt, and pepper. Simmer for about five minutes.
Stir in cashew cream and ¼ of the baked onions. Stir in cooked green beans.
Spread mixture into a large casserole dish. Top with remaining baked onions. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes.
