This is not the green bean casserole I grew up on made with the heavy processed soups. It is our new green bean casserole that is whole food and still delicious.

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1 tsp marjoram

2 tbs nutritional yeast

1/4 cup slivered almonds


Add half of the coconut oil in a large skillet and place over med heat. Add in sliced shallots. Stir often to prevent burning -30-40 minutes or until caramelized. Once the onions are golden, remove from heat and transfer to a bowl, set aside.
