“Skinny” Thanksgiving Green Beans

One of my favorite things to indulge in on Thanksgiving is the big tray of green bean casserole! My grandma made them with tons of heavy cream, lots of salt and crispy onions…my Mom’s version is very similar. While I LOVE their version I am always looking for a way to make a “skinny” version of some of my favorite dishes!

This dish is a great way to get the same satisfying flavor without all the guilt!

Here is how we did it!

What you need:

Handful of green beans

2 -3 cups of mushrooms

White wine

1 tbsp of butter

1 tbsp olive oil

2 cloves of garlic

Squeeze of lemon

sea salt, black pepper & nutmeg



Blanch the green beans and place in to a cold bath

In a large skillet, melt the butter and add the mushrooms

Once browned, add the garlic and a pinch of sea salt

Once garlic is soft, add a splash of white wine and heavy cream, move around the mushrooms and garlic

Add greens beans to skillet and toss with mushrooms.

Remove green beans and mushrooms from skillet.

In the skillet, add 1/4 cup of white wine, heavy splash of heavy cream and a good pinch of parmesan and flour. Add a good squeeze of lemon. Whisk together and pour over green beans!

Yuuum! Enjoy!
