Green beans are a nutritious vegetable that are rich in vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients such as vitamins A & C, calcium, iron, manganese, beta-carotene, and protein. Green beans provide significant cardiovascular benefits due to their omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid) content. They also contain ant-inflammatory compounds which make them highly beneficial for individuals who suffer with auto-immune disorders such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, COPD, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowl syndrome, chronic sinusitis, bursitis, Raynaud’s syndrome and lupus.
Green Bean Casserole
For the onion rings:
1 cup chickpea breadcrumbs
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
2 1/2 tbsp ground golden flaxseeds
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 medium onions, sliced 1/2 inch thick and separated into rings
For the green beans:
1 cup raw cashews
1 1/3 cup vegetable stock or water
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tbsp lemon juice
1.5 lbs fresh green beans, rinsed, trimmed and cut in half
1/2 tsp avocado oil
1/2 yellow onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
Sea salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
To make the onion rings, place the chickpea breadcrumbs, paprika, salt and pepper in a food processor and process until you get a fine crumb. Set aside.
Make the flax egg by whisking together the ground flaxseeds and almond milk. Let sit for 5 minutes to thicken.
Dip the onion rings first into the flax egg and then into the breadcrumb mixture. Place on the baking sheet and repeat with the rest of the onions. Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden and crispy. Leave to cool.
Make the cashew cream by blending together the soaked cashews, water or vegetable stock, dried thyme, lemon juice, salt and pepper until very smooth. Set aside.
Steam the green beans for 2 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Heat oil in a large frying pan and add the onions. Cook until translucent, about 6-8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Stir in the cooked green beans and cashew cream. Remove and pour into a 11x7 inch baking dish. Top with onion rings and bake for a further 5-10 minutes, until warmed through and crispy on top. Best served warm.
