Protein-Packed Green Bean Casserole Recipe
There’s nothing like a classic green bean casserole to round out your holiday side-dish game. The bright and crisp vegetable dish is a great way to get little ones to eat their cooked green beans and to wow the whole crowd with its delicious flavor and scrumptious texture.
Our version of this classic veggie casserole adds a boost of protein thanks to Allo Natural protein powder for hot coffee to an easy green bean casserole recipe that you can put together in just a few minutes and have ready in just over 35 minutes. If you’re going all out with a turkey feast, it’s the perfect thing to pop in the oven a few minutes before you remove the bird and start carving, or make it ahead of time and warm it in the oven once the roast is removed.
Green Bean Casserole with Protein
Our casserole is based on the classic French’s Green Bean Casserole recipe found on the back of your pack of French’s Crispy Fried Onions.
The specific type and style of green beans you use in your casserole is entirely up to personal preference. You can use fresh green beans, canned, or frozen green beans, though you will want to cook the frozen ones before you add them to the casserole.
While you can easily swap out the milk for a plant-based version, the whey-based protein for a pea-based option, and the cream of mushroom soup for a vegan substitute, the French’s Crispy Fried Onions are not themselves vegan. They are fully vegetarian-friendly, but they contain dextrose, a type of sugar that is not considered to be vegan. However, you can make your own French fried onions if you are intent on having your dish be fully vegan or just to add that extra handmade touch.
