Green Bean Casserole
Green Bean Casserole is an all-time holiday favorite, it's synonymous with Thanksgiving, but the typical 1 cup serving has over 230 calories!?! We've lightened up the recipe while keeping all the savory, creamy good flavor. Using MRC Cream of Chicken soup is a smart swap, adding 12 grams of protein and saving 5 grams of bad fat, score! We use frozen green beans and mushrooms in this version, but fresh vegetable would work great too, just adjust your cooking time or steam the veggies a bit first. This recipe contains 1 TBSP grass-fed butter, but you could increase it to 2 TBSP for a richer flavor, each serving would then replace 1 healthy fat serving.
The crushed Melba rounds are used in place on "fried onions", this saves your heart from that crazy bad fat while retaining all the crunchy onion flavor.
