Green (yellow) bean casserole

Green (yellow) bean casserole


  • 1 medium sized flying saucer squash (cubed)
  • ¼ head radicchio (cut into thin slices)
  • ½ medium onion (chopped small)
  • 3 medium white mushrooms (thinly sliced)
  • 2 leaves of sorrel (tore or rough chopped)
  • ¼ green bell pepper (cubed)
  • 12 oz. of yellow beans, chopped
  • ½ small can of cream of mushrooms
  • ¼ bag crispy fried onions
  • Fajita seasoning
  • Garlic powder
  • Ground coriander
  • Salt and pepper
  • Mrs. Dash seasoning


  1. Sauté the squash, onions, chopped filet beans and radicchio. Sprinkle a little of each seasoning when the vegetables begin to “sweat” or release liquid. Quickly remove from the pan and transfer into an oven safe baking dish or casserole.
  2. While your skillet is still hot, sauté your mushrooms with the sorrel. Again season the mushrooms and sorrel with the seasonings listed. When the mushrooms are fully cooked add to the baking dish.
  3. The green beans should be strained then added to your cooked veggie mixture. Add the cream of mushrooms to the veggie mixture. Taste the mixture and consider adding more seasonings.
  4. Top the casserole with fried onions and bake at 375 for about 30 to 45 minutes.
