Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 Cups Green Beans – rinsed, ends trimmed
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt – or to taste
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper, ground – or to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Shallot – minced
  • 3 Garlic, clove

  • 2 Tablespoons All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 Cups Vegetable Broth, low-sodium
  • 1 Cup Almond Milk, unsweetened
  • 1 Cup Crispy Fried Onions

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C).

Steam green beans. Drain and place in an ice bath to stop cooking. Drain and arrange in a baking dish. Set aside.

3

To prepare the sauce, in a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat, add olive oil, shallots, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and stir.

Sautee until translucent, then add ½ of the mushrooms and season with a bit more salt and pepper. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until lightly browned.

Add remaining uncooked mushrooms to skillet and sauté with olive oil until golden brown.
