NO CREAM SOUP Green Bean Casserole

Servings 10 servings


  • 3 (14.5 oz) cans green beans
  • 5 Tbsp butter
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 3/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 (3 oz) pkg French's French Fried Onions (or Alton Brown has a homemade version)


  • In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Add the flour and whisk until the mixture becomes fragrant and nutty, about 1 minute.
  • Slowly whisk in the chicken broth and milk.
  • Bring mixture to a boil, whisking constantly, until thickened. Season with salt and pepper. Drain the liquid from the cans of green beans and add them to the cream sauce.
  • Pour beans and sauce into a lightly greased 13x9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle the top with French fried onions, and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, until bubbling in the center and heated through.


*Sauté some sliced mushrooms in butter, and add them to the sauce for a more traditional green bean casserole.
