INGREDIENTS

For almond milk

  • 1 cup (150g) almonds
  • 1 quart (946ml) water
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt (optional)

For casserole

  • 1 pound green beans (rinsed, trimmed and cut in half)
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth - I used frozen vegetable broth that I previously made with the NutraMilk
  • 1 cup simple almond milk made with the NutraMilk
  • 2 tbsp. vegan butter or olive oil
  • 1 medium shallot (minced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 cup finely chopped mushrooms (button, baby bella, or cremini)
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour (you can also use a gluten-free flour)
  • 1 1/2 cups crispy fried onions (divided)
  • Sea salt and black pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

For almond Milk

  • Start by making fresh almond milk with the NutraMilk:
    • Place almonds in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 7 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Add water and replace lid.
    • Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time).
    • Press Start.
    • Press Dispense, open spigot and fill your container with almond milk.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C). Bring a large pot of water with salt to a boil and add green beans to cook for 5 minutes, then drain and set aside.
  • In the meantime, start preparing sauce. In a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat, add vegan butter or olive oil and shallots and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and stir. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then add mushrooms and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes more or until lightly browned.
  • Sprinkle in flour and whisk to stir and coat the veggies. Cook for 1 minute, then slowly add in veggie stock, whisking to incorporate.
  • Add almond milk next and whisk to stir again, then reduce heat to low to thicken, about 5-7 minutes more. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.
  • Remove from heat and add 1/3 of the fried onions and all of the cooked green beans. Toss to coat well, and top with remaining fried onions.

  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until warmed through and bubbly and slightly browned on top. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
