    This was in today's Richmond Times Dispatch in the food section. I really want to make this one so I'm posting it so that I can put the paper into the recycle bin.

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 400.
    2. 2
      Bring a large pot of water to a boil with several pinches of salt. Add green beans and cook for about 5 minutes, until they turn bright green. Once cooked, drain and rinse the beans until they are cooled. Set aside.
    3. 3
      In a medium skillet, add canola oil to a depth of about one inch and heat. Add the leeks and cook until they are crisp. Remove from oil and put onto a paper towel lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt.
    4. 4
      Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat and add mushrooms and thyme. Cook until mushrooms are soft and begin to take on color. Add garlic and cook for a minute or less, being careful not to let garlic burn.
    5. 5
      Add flour and cook for about a minute, stirring the whole time. Add stock and half-and-half and stir. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the mixture thickens and no longer tastes of flour, stirring frequently. Season with salt and pepper.
    6. 6
      Mix green beans into the mushroom sauce and transfer to a casserole dish. Top with cheese, breadcrumbs and fried leeks.
    7. 7
      Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted, breadcrumbs brown and sauce is bubbling.
    8. 8
      NOTE: I guessed at prep and cook time as I haven't actually made this yet and the recipe doesn't say.

      Great recipe, I followed it to the "T", with exception of the cheese and panko topping which I left out of the recipe as I had another dish with cheese in it. My family loved it.

      I needed to make veggies for a shelter group and this seemed like a nice variation on the classic bean casserole. I, too, followed the recipe to a T (quadrupling it) but found there was WAAAAY too much liquid. Two cups of liquid for 1 lb of beans seems a little high and only 2 T flour to thicken the liquid seems too little. Frying the leeks is a messy and time consuming process, but the flavor of the dish is very good. I now have a nice soup base with the leftover liquid.
