SERVES: 8-10 | TIME: 1 HR 30 MIN
Cream-less Mushroom Soup Ingredients:
2 tablespoons coconut oil or butter
2 medium onions, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
16 ounces mushrooms, sliced
1 ½ tablespoons onion powder
1 tablespoon fresh thyme
1 tablespoon fresh oregano
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 large head of cauliflower, chopped
2 ¾ cups chicken or mushroom broth
3 cups Cream-less Mushroom Soup (recipe above makes 6 cups)
2 pounds fresh or frozen green beans, cut
1 cup mushrooms, diced and sautéed
sea salt & pepper
2 medium onions, sliced into rings
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons blanched almond flour
Cream-less Mushroom Soup Directions:
Melt butter or coconut oil in a pan and sauté onions, garlic, mushrooms, herbs, and spices. Once onions begin to look translucent, add cauliflower, then the broth. Cover and simmer until cauliflower is very tender.
Remove mixture from the stove and place in a blender. Blend the mixture until smooth and creamy.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Place green beans in a 9x13 glass baking dish. Add Cream-less Mushroom Soup, mushrooms, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix until ingredients are evenly dispersed then set aside.
Slice the onions into rings and separate the rings into a large bowl. Drizzle olive oil over onion rings, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then mix. Add almond flour, toss until evenly coated. Transfer onions to a baking sheet and bake 10-15 minutes or until the edges become browned and slightly crisp.
Turn oven down to 350 degrees and pull onions out.
Top the green bean mixture with onions, cover with foil and bake 10 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes or until the casserole is bubbly. Broil for 1-2 minutes for a crisper finish.
