Allergy Free Green Bean Casserole

I do not like green bean casserole.  Never, ever have.  I don't like canned green beans or canned soups or green mushy foods.  But my hubby has been sweetly asking me for green bean casserole for months.  I finally relented and searched around for recipes, made tons of changes, tried it a few different ways and finally found a recipe that he loves.  And I have to admit, I kinda like it too.  You know, it's not half bad when it's made with fresh or frozen green beans and made from scratch.  It also helps that my hubby made homemade onion rings for the topping.  I no longer hate green bean casserole and the kids thought it was pretty good!  I guess I'll make it again for the hubby.......

Green Bean Casserole
3 T olive oil
4 T Earth Balance Soy Free
1/2 red onion, diced
3 T rice flour
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp granulated garlic 
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
16 oz fresh or frozen green beans (I used French style)

Thaw and drain green beans.  Or rinse and dry if using fresh.
Add olive oil and Earth Balance to sauce pan.  
Heat on medium until Earth Balance melts.
Add diced onions and saute until onions are translucent.
Turn heat to low and whisk in the flour.
Slowly add in chicken broth and spices.
Heat on medium high until thickened slightly.
Pour over green beans in greased casserole dish.
Heat in oven at 350 for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
Top with diced onion rings.

I've never been a big green bean fan, either, but since this passed muster in your house, I will just have to try it here, as well! :-) Thanks so much for linking up with "Try a New Recipe Tuesday!" I look forward to seeing what you'll share next week. :-) Have a great weekend.
