While this green bean casserole might be missing the cream of mushroom soup you’ve come to associate with the classic holiday dish, it’s certainly not lacking in flavor. Fresh garlic, green beans and mushrooms come together to pack a hearty, flavorful punch that’s topped off with an onion-and-almond crunch. This casserole won’t make you feel guilty about having seconds — indulge away!
