Prep: 25 minCook: 35 minTotal: 1 hour
Servings: serves 6 - 8 1x


  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 1 pt. baby bella mushrooms, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. tapioca starch
  • 1 cup chicken or turkey stock
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 and 1/2 lbs. trimmed and cut green beans
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Begin by heating the butter or ghee in a large skillet over medium heat. Then add the onion and mushrooms. Sauté until the onions are soft and the mushrooms have reduced, about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Add the tapioca starch and cook for an additional 2 minutes before pouring in the stock, coconut milk, salt and green beans.
  4. Let this come to a boil, stirring frequently, and reduce to a simmer for about 5 minutes until the mixture thickens. Remove from the heat.
  5. Mix together the almond flour, nutritional yeast, salt and onion powder and set aside.
  6. When the green bean mixture is finished cooking, pour it into a small casserole dish.
  7. Top with the almond meal mixture and place it in the oven for 34-40 minutes, or until the top of the casserole is golden brown and the insides are bubbling.
  8. Let this sit for about 20 minutes before serving to allow the filling to cool and thicken a bit.
