Healthy Recipe: Green Bean Casserole

admin - November 25, 2014

Healthy green bean casserole.

We have a festive recipe that you can whip up just in time for your family’s holiday dinner. Green bean casserole seems to be a staple for the feast, but the original version is packed with sodium, fat and calories. So instead of nixing a classic dish, use this recipe for an updated and lighter version.

Green Bean Casserole with Madeira Mushrooms – click here for the full recipe

  • 1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed and halved crosswise
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cups chopped sweet onion
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
  • 1 (8-ounce) package presliced button mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup Madeira wine or dry sherry
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup (about 2 ounces) canned fried onions (such as French’s)
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

If you aren’t a fan of mushrooms, feel free to substitute in peppers, olives or other vegetables. Also keep in mind that if you prefer to have softer green beans, you can leave the casserole in the oven for a longer period of time.

Vegetables have always been known to benefit any diet. Maintaining a regular intake of vegetables can very well reduce the risk of stroke, cancer, heart diseases, and diabetes. For more information on preventive health care, visit
