How to cook green bean casserole: the low-fat, classic, wowza, and cheater versions.
We love Green Bean Casserole, but it doesn't always love us—the average serving has 300 calories and tons of fat. Luckily, Hungry Girl's "Rockin' Lean Bean Casserole" has only 80 calories and one gram of fat per serving. Now that's something to be thankful for.
HG's Rockin' Lean Bean Casserole!
(Serving Size: 1/8 Casserole - 80 calories, 1g fat, 255mg sodium, 13g carbs, 4g fiber, 3g protein -- POINTS® value 1)
2 bags frozen french style green beans
1 can Campbell's 98% Fat Free Cream of Celery Soup
1/2 cup Light Silk Soy Milk
1 can sliced water chestnuts
1 bag Crispy Delites Red Onion Chips, crushed
Defrost and thoroughly drain green beans. Draining these is sooo important. Make sure they are dry. Use a towel if you need to! Place half of the dried green beans in a casserole dish (2-3 quart rectangular works best). Mix soup with the soy milk. Spread 1/2 of the soup mixture on top. Lay some sliced water chestnuts on top. Top with remaining green beans, cover again with the rest of the soup mixture and another layer of water chestnuts. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 45 minutes. Finally, add crushed onions on top and cook for another 10-15 minutes or so. Serves 8.
