As Thanksgiving morning dawns, preparations are afoot. The stuffing is given a few last minute touches and perhaps a secret ingredient or two is added as per a family recipe. The turkey or any bird has to be stuffed and baked slowly. Amidst all these preparations it is possible to overlook one of the simplest, yet often underrated side dish. I am talking about the humble, yet tasty and nutritious green bean casserole.
This crunchy and creamy dish is easy to make. Just follow the recipe below:
1 can cream of mushroom soup
4 cups cut, cooked green beans
1/2 cup milk
A dash of black pepper
1 tsp soy sauce
1 1/3 cup fried onions
- Stir the soup, milk, soy sauce, black pepper, beans and 2/3 cups onions in a 1 1/2-quart casserole.
- Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes or till the bean mixture bubbles. Stir it and sprinkle the remaining onions.
- Bake for an additional 5 minutes or until the onions are golden brown.
Serve with a dollop of love.
This recipe is simple and easy to make. You can make simple variations such as substituting soy sauce with cheese, change the soup flavor from mushroom to asparagus or even change the vegetable from beans to broccoli.
