READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Kanzeda

I swiped this from the Food networks low carb and loving it, green bean casserole recipe. Isolating the parts that recreate the Consensed cream of mushroom soup part and fiddled a bit with it.

Awesome! I'm looking for healthier alternatives so I thought I'd try this in place of the canned soup. As usual, anything you make from scratch tastes 100% better. Half way through cooking the mushrooms & onions, I noticed a pleasing fragrance that filled the kitchen. I said to my husband, "This smells SO good!" It took me about 15 minutes to reduce the liquid, however. When the liquid was reduced, I then pureed it in the food processor so it resembled the canned stuff.
