Green bean casserole was always a Thanksgiving staple at my house growing up. If you're running out of oven space when planning your Thanksgiving meal, or, just want a few dishes that will be easy to prepare (leaving you more time to focus on all those Thanksgiving desserts, perhaps!), then try this super easy crockpot green bean casserole which you can make ahead of time in your slow cooker.
This easy crock pot green bean casserole recipe uses canned soup and frozen green beans, so it's ready to cook in your crock pot or slow cooker in just a few minutes. It's not a fancy recipe, but it does have all the essential classic all-American green bean casserole ingredients: green beans, mushrooms soup, and French fried onions.
Note that mushroom soup is usually not vegan, so although this recipe is vegetarian, it is not vegan, but, you can also try making your own homemade vegan cream of mushroom soup to use in this recipe if you need it to be completely dairy-free.
