I originally posted this as a Thanksgiving Day dinner side dish, but technically you can make it any day!
Thanksgiving is one day away! What I’ve noticed is that a lot of the turkey-related foods are gluten-free, which I am thankful for! Sides that are not include stuffing and my fave – green bean casserole. I really need to try out (for the very first time) the Trader Joe’s gluten-free stuffing before tomorrow – kind of like a dry run, just to make sure. Here is my recipe for homemade green bean casserole – gluten-free style!
1 large onion, sliced super thin
1 cup gluten free breadcrumbs
12 oz mushrooms, take the stems off and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 cup gluten-free flour (for the onions)
1 cup gluten-free flour (for the sauce)
2 tbsp. butter
1 cup half and half
2 cloves garlic, minced
2.5 lb green beans, steamed with ends cut off and halved
1 cup chicken broth
Combine the gluten-free breadcrumbs with flour in a shallow dish/bowl. Mush the thinly sliced onions in the mixture and then place them on a baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes, turning frequently.
While the onions are “frying”, melt the butter in a cast-iron skillet. Once melted, add the mushrooms until they start to “extract” water. Add the minced garlic and let cook for 1 minute, stirring. Add the rest of the flour and mix, allowing to cook for another minute or so. Add the chicken stock (organic preferably), then half and half. Let simmer for 6 – 8 minutes until the sauce thickens.
Add 1/4 of the newly fried onion to the top, mix, then add the green beans, the remainder of the onions, and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Serve immediately. You may need salt and pepper…I don’t cook with it but it definitely needs it – to taste.
Thanks Mamma! I learned to enjoy cooking from you and Dad!

green beans and gluten-free are for me (psst…came over from A Little Bird Told Me Linky Party! 😀 )
Thanks for stopping by Andi! Happy Thanksgiving!
That looks delicious! I’ve been using arrowroot powder as my gluten-free thickener. It does make the sauces a little stringy though; I had not thought of using a prepared gluten free flour. Thanks for the tip!
Carissa, I’ve never heard of arrowroot powder but will definitely look for it for future recipes that need some thickening!
I don’t have the allergy but I like to eat gluten free anyway. Yum, this looks tasty!
Thanks Leslie, and thanks for stopping by!
