I’m excited, but I didn’t want to wait to enjoy one of my T-day staples – green bean casserole. I don’t have a fancy version, because um, I’m not fancy. But I do use fresh green beans. That’s it.

But, I’m not going to bust out a whole turkey dinner to go along with it! So, I cooked up some ground turkey for protein power and it’s even better.

    That looks so good. I am going to make it with tempeh and vegan cheese that I have in the fridge and I think unsweetened almond milk and some mushroom powder, because see unlike you I ate lots of meat ( no dirty connotation meant) in college and now I am trying out my vegan phase at 47. Going on 8 months…is it still a phase ?

    I think I need a pumpkin pie blizzard if we are talking turkey already. 😉

    Any excuse is a good excuse to have a blizzard (although not that kind I have to shovel.)

      Nope you are not the only one. I will make the dish for my family, then steam a bowl of plain green beans for me (no almonds either!)

    Yum – I’m picking up green beans on the way home and making this tonight! Thanks!!

    What’s 21 seasoning salute? I’m guessing seasoned salt would work too?

    I’m making this tomorrow, probably will not add the cheese on top. Will also use the Healthy Request version of soup. Sounds and looks delicious! I can’t wait to try it! Thanks for taking the time to post it :)
