What are your favorite Thanksgiving sides? After polling the Blue Moose office, we couldn’t stop talking about green bean casserole. You either love it or hate it. We are on team green bean, and whether it’s a classic in your house or not, this version is a must try. We have reinvented the tried and true recipe by swapping out the canned cream of mushroom soup for our Organic Roasted Garlic Hummus. Aside from making it a bit healthier, it also makes for some good Thanksgiving conversation… “you did what with hummus?!”
One bite of this casserole and you’ll be wondering why you haven’t been serving it year round. Crunchy green beans, creamy flavorful sauce and crispy onions, make for side that you’ll be going back for seconds. Also if you don’t have time to add another dish day of, this can be prepared ahead! Just wait to add the toppings until you’re ready to bake the casserole and serve immediately after baking. Who doesn’t love saving more time for good conversation and another glass of wine?
For a light and tasty twist, we opted to use chickpeas as the base for this salad, but if you’re craving a more classic chicken salad recipe, you can easily swap or add shredded chicken. Also instead of serving on toasted bread, we recommend using crisp butter lettuce cups, which can even be rolled up and enjoyed on the go as a wrap!
