I recently had to take lactose out of my diet, much to my dismay. It’s been a challenge to recreate my holiday favorites but I think I hit it out of the park with this recipe!
42.5 oz canned cut green beans, drained
8 oz/1 container baby bella mushrooms, cleaned and quartered
4 cups lactose free milk
6 oz french fried onions
2 tbsp flour
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt & ground pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Clean mushrooms off with a damp paper towel and then quarter. Add to skillet with a splash of olive oil over medium heat. Cook until tender or slightly browned. Continue over medium heat and add lactose free milk. Whisk in flour, 1 tbsp at a time. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Continue whisking until sauce starts to thicken. You will know your sauce is thickened when you can slightly see the bottom of the pan as you whisk. Turn stove top off. Add in all green beans and 1/2 french fried onions. Mix together well. Pour into 2 quart baking dish and bake 30 minutes. Top with remaining french fried onions and bake 5-10 minutes longer until onions are browned.
Don’t forget to add love, it makes all the difference!
