  1. This looks amazing! I have been a huge fan of green bean casserole since I was a little girl. Thank you Lauren for this recipe and for sharing your wisdom! I can’t begin to explain how much of a blessing Empowered Sustenance has been for me. I cannot ever thank you enough Lauren! You are my hero!

  2. I made this for thanksgiving today it was awesome I not a fan of green bean casserole but wanted to make this so I can enjoy some food for dinner.every one loved it. Thanks for recipe not that difficult to make.

  3. Thank you for this recipe, Lauren! It was delicious addition to our Thanksgiving meal. I made the soup the night before and prepped the green beans. The nuts caused some problems for removing the skins as I wasn’t sure how long to keep them in the skilllet. They were turning charcoal, so I figured although I didn’t hear them crackling, I should remove and roll in the clean kitchen towel. Do you have an approximate window of time to keep the nuts in the skillet for? I know I’ll be making these again! Thanks again!

    • It takes about 5 minutes in a hot skillet for me. When the skins turn a deeper color and start to smell toasty, that’s when they’re ready. Not all the skins will come off. I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe but sorry to hear that my instructions weren’t detailed enough for preparing the hazelnuts!

  4. Hi Lauren!

    Love reading your blog!, I like the recipe, simple and really healthy. I want to try making it. Well I hope it turn out ok. I am not a fan of green bean, but will give this a try. How much did this cost for the recipe?

    Thanks for sharing

  5. This looks so yummy! Thanks for sharing your recipe. I’m actually reading a lot of recipes these days because I’m doing a vegan book and I’m just so happy that I came across your post and saw that your ingredients are purely vegetables. By the way, can I use olive oil instead of ghee for the cream of mushroom? Will there be a big difference in taste?
