This recipe gives you all the flavors of green bean casserole but it’s much simpler to prepare (not to mention lighter, fresher and more modern).

Ingredients

uncooked string beans

1½ pound(s), ends trimmed

fresh shiitake mushroom

1½ pound(s), tough stems discarded, caps thinly sliced

uncooked shallot(s)

4 large, thinly sliced

olive oil

1 Tbsp

kosher salt

1 tsp

creme fraiche

¼ cup(s)

sliced almonds

¼ cup(s), lightly toasted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  2. Place green beans, mushrooms and shallots in a large baking dish; drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt. Mix everything together with your hands and spread vegetables out in an even layer in pan. Roast vegetables until they’re softened and browned in spots, stirring them once or twice, about 30 minutes.
  3. Dollop crème fraiche on top of warm vegetables; mix well to combine. Sprinkle almonds evenly on top; serve immediately.
  4. Serving size: 2/3 c

Notes

Lightly toasted nuts have much more flavor than raw ones. Toast in a dry skillet over medium heat or on a sheet pan in a 350ºF oven.
