Green bean casserole is a traditional American Thanksgiving dish which seems to appear out of nowhere during the fall and winter holidays. Year round, you'd be hard pressed to find it anywhere, but around Thanksgiving and Christmas time, it's suddenly everywhere. No Thanksgiving or Christmas table would be complete without a classic green bean casserole!

This recipe is for a vegetarian and vegan version of a traditional green bean casserole, using vegan margarine and nutritional yeast in place of milk, cream, or the usual canned mushroom soup (ew!) to create a creamy and saucy vegan green bean casserole which is completely dairy-free and suitable for anyone on a vegan diet, and, of course, it's also much lighter as far as fat and calories. So, if you're looking for a lighter and healthier green bean casserole for any reason, this vegan green bean casserole recipe will be a good one for you to try.
