Children are about to go nuts because Christmas is nearly here, and things are winding down here.
Before things become too busy, we spend time with them daily. We are taking advantage of these last few days of family time before the bustle of the holidays takes over. Additionally, we are preparing for the holidays and ensuring we have everything we’ll need at Christmas.
I will share a great and easy Christmas Eve dinner dish with you today from Daniel Woodrum.
Enjoy this delicious Clean Green Bean Casserole!
Daniel is going to take it from here.

What You Will Need:
- 3 tbsp Coconut Oil, divided
- One large bag of Frozen Green Beans, thawed
- 2 cups Parsnips, chopped
- One medium sweet onion, thinly sliced
- One package or 10 oz. Sliced White Mushrooms
- ¼ cup Water
- ½ tsp Sea Salt and Ground Pepper
- ½ tsp Garlic Powder
Here’s how to make it:
In a skillet over medium heat, melt one tablespoon of coconut oil. Sliced onions should be sautéed for 15 to 20 minutes or until caramelized. Set aside in a bowl after the onions have turned golden brown.
Green beans should be steamed or boiled in a pot for 6 minutes or until they are cooked to your preference, whether you prefer them crispy or tender. Add one tablespoon coconut oil and the sliced mushrooms to the same skillet. Set aside after cooking mushrooms for about 5 minutes, or until they start to release their liquid. Transfer to a baking dish after draining. Place half of the cooked mushrooms and half of the caramelized onions in the mixture.
Set oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. To prepare the creamy sauce, cook the parsnips for about 3 minutes, or until they are fork-tender, in a pot with 2 tbsp of water. Put these in the blender, add the water, one tablespoon of coconut oil, and the remaining mushrooms. Combine with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix the green beans with the creamy sauce before adding the other half of the onion—20 to 25 minutes of baking.

This recipe for Clean Green Bean Casserole is simple to prepare but tastes much more sophisticated than it is. Green beans, mushrooms, and onions make a fantastic mix. It’s nutritious, filling, and incredibly tasty.
Green bean casserole doesn’t need to be unhealthy. The classic condensed soup can be omitted in favor of a lighter sauce prepared with Greek yogurt instead of mayo and a ton of fresh herbs rather than dried ones, but the mustard, red wine vinegar, and lemon juice still add gobs of flavor.
Due to the abundance of healthy ingredients, this Clean Green Bean Casserole is not only diet-friendly but also ideal for those following an anti-inflammatory diet. For example, green beans are high in vitamins A, C, and K, onions are one of the strongest natural anti-inflammatory foods, and mushrooms have immune-boosting beta-glucan. And the best part is that the entire preparation time for this casserole is only 35 minutes!
Everyone will surely love it!
