I don’t usually like green beans, but this was delicious!!
Can this be made ahead and just warmed up?
I will add a half cup of nutritional yeast to help give it the creaminess it’s lacking compared to the traditional recipe.
This was absolutely a hit amongst all!!
HOWEVER, despite the fact i spend my Thanksgivings with an Italian chosen-family, i still wasn’t keen on the Italian seasoning… esp not for Thanksgiving! Instead, i combined generous shakes of Poultry seasoning (yes, its vegan), garlic salt, and sage, with a timid splash of dried thyme and rosemary.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND this combo.
I also added a tiny bit of almond flour flour to the baked onions, as the flax meal alone made me suspicious, and hardly coated them. I used this flour instead of oat, cuz i didnt have time to grind up oats and thusbwas in the cupboard.
The process itself was perfect tho, nit too extensive, not soaking in oil, salt, sugar or the like.
Thanks PCRM! Its a keeper.
I followed your suggestions—they were right on! Thanks! I also added 1 T of tapioca flour to the broth to thicken it up a bit. I wasn’t sure if the oat flour would sink to the bottom when leftovers were served. Maybe it would be fine (was it?) but I didn’t want to take the risk. I also doubled the almonds—sooo good! A brilliant topper. I’ll be making this every year! Tasty and low fat!
(guess i shouldnt have disabled auto-correct whoops! )
Could celery replace mushrooms? I’m allergic.
I am trying celery because my sister doesn’t like mushrooms at all! Fingers crossed!
