Indian Spiced Paleo Green Bean Casserole

Green Bean Casserole

Ok, there’s really nothing better than green bean casserole. Growing up, I ate the super processed kind. You know, the kind that uses canned green beans, canned cream of mushroom soup, and French’s pre-packaged fried onions. Yeah…

Luckily, I’ve moved onto MUCH better versions (no, really) of this delicious dish. I’ve infused some Indian flavors like cumin into a homemade cream of mushroom soup that’s rustic, creamy, and delicious (and dairy free)! Tender roasted green beans are baked in the creamy soup and topped with spicy homemade paleo fried onions (thanks, Jean!). I use her recipe but add red chili powder to it to add some heat!

The layers of cream, rustic, cumin mushrooms with the tender green beans and spicy, crispy addicting fried onions is to die for. Let me know if you try this and how you like it by dropping a comment below. Enjoy!

Ingredients for Fried Onions


  • Prepare creamy mushroom soup and set aside.

  • Drizzle olive oil, salt, and pepper on green beans and toss until coated evenly.

It contains a rustic cream of mushroom soup infused with cumin, coriander and smoked paprika. Rao then bakes tender green beans into the creamy soup and adds crispy fried onions on top for an addictive crunch. “I grew up eating traditional green bean casserole and always thought it lacked flavor,” Rao says.
