Before I get on with my new and healthy Green Bean Casserole recipe, I wanted to let you guys know that I have an awesome giveaway coming up! It will be a $50 gift card to the CSN Stores. I am super excited about this giveaway because they have so many awesome items there. Be sure to check out their UK site and look at the Le Creuset cookware. It’s pretty snazzy! The giveaway will be soon so keep your eyes peeled … and you can stop by the CSN store to check out all their goodies. There’s something for everyone!
Now on to the yummies! Hopefully you have checked out my older post – my perfected Green Bean Casserole. It took me a couple years to get it just the way my husband liked it! Green Bean Casserole is by far his favorite side, so when we started eating healthier, I decided to make some changes to my older recipe. Oddly enough, this recipe uses just a handful of ingredients. He loves it served this simple and healthy way, but feel free to check out my other GB Cass post for a comparison! This version totals 300 calories… for the entire caserole! Talk about awesome. Feel free to make this healthier version a bit snazzier by adding in your favorite things (onions, mushrooms, herbs, whatever!). Cheeeeck it out!
- 3 cans of green beans, drained (low/no sodium versions if possible)
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup (Tasty Classics brand if you can find it – it’s the creamiest!)
- Seasonings of your choice
Seriously, that’s it. I just dump everything into a casserole dish and bake it at 350 for 30 minutes or so. Sometimes I add diced onion and I always throw in some garlic and herbs (just whatever I feel like adding, my husband has his favorite jar of dried Italian herbs I use).
Now, I totally suggest getting this brand of cream of mushroom soup:
Tasty Classics. It’s SO cheap down here. The hubby wanted to try it so we got one can and I tested it out. It’s so incredibly creamy that I don’t need to add anything extra (ie: milk). It’s awesome. So we went back and bought every can they had. Ha!
If you feel you need a topping, toss on some of those fried onions like the original recipe we all know has or bust out the buttery ritz crackers I use in my previous recipe. You could even just throw on some panko crumbs to get a nice crust. It’s up to you! My husband says he likes it best without the topping, making this crazy awesome casserole majorly low in calories.
I hope you give this Green Bean Casserole recipe a try… or maybe splurge a bit and try my other GB Cass recipe! Whichever you choose, I hope you enjoy it! : )
