Ingredients
  

  • 1 ½ lb trimmed green beans
  • 3 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 1 cup mini bell peppers sliced into rings
  • 2 medium red potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 1 tablespoon butter or vegan butter
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2-3 teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan or nutritional yeast
  • ¼ cup milk or plant milk plus more as needed

Topping

  • ¼ cup gluten free breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan or nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions
 

  • In a wide pot, boil the green beans for 3 minutes, then transfer to an ice bath to stop cooking. In the same pot, boil the potatoes until fork tender. Transfer to another bowl and mash with the milk until very smooth and creamy.
  • Drain the water from the pot and add the oil with onions and peppers on 75% heat. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the onions are translucent, then add the mushrooms, butter, and garlic. Cook until the mushrooms have wilted, then add in the mashed potatoes and parm, along with additional milk if needed. Add the salt and pepper.
  • In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, parmesan, and oil.
  • In a greased 9"x 11" dish, layer the green beans and vegetables alternatively twice. Top with the breadcrumbs and bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
