Green Bean and Protein Casserole

I think everyones had some form of green bean casserole before. Christmas or thanksgiving dinners. Or an easy weeknight dinner where mom would throw a can of mushroom soup in the mix with a little bread crumbs. Yum!

What I really enjoy when experimenting is making healthy spins on those classic recipes. I know every once in a while you have to enjoy the real thang but this spin truly is delicious. It’s very flavourful with the use of natural flavouring such as onion and garlic.

By using ground turkey it’s loaded up with protein and can be used as a one dish meal for the whole family. It can be low carb just as is or with a side of rice as well! If your family are cheese lovers you can of course add additional cheeses to cheese it right up. This is only the healthiest version but feel free to spice it up the way you like it.

It’s also very simple to make which is just a bonus!
