Green Bean Casserole
¼ C flour
3-4 Tbsp. canola oil (or water)
1½ C vegetable broth (or 1½ C water + ½ heaping tsp. “Better Than Bouillon® - No Chicken” base)
1 Tbsp. soy sauce (regular or low-sodium)
¼ C nutritional yeast
½ tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. onion powder
3-15 oz. cans of green beans, drained (approximately 4 ½ cups)
French fried onions, to taste (optional)
Yield: 8-10 servings (½ C)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Brown the flour in the canola oil. Combine the broth and soy sauce; pour into the pan, whisking constantly. Cook until thickened.
Combine the nutritional yeast with the garlic and onion powders; sprinkle on the gravy. Cook and stir until bubbly.
In a large bowl, combine the green beans and sauce. Stir in some French-fried onions at this time, if desired.
