Servings 6 people


  • 4 cups Fresh Cut Green Beans
  • 16 ounces Mushrooms chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped
  • 2 large Garlic Cloves minced
  • 1.5 cups 2% milk warmed
  • 3 tbsp. Butter
  • 3 tbsp. All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Fried Onions store bought, example would be French's brand
  • 1/2 cup Panko Bread Crumbs


  1. Wash and cut the fresh green beans. Boil them for 5 minutes, strain and set aside.
  2. Pour 2 tbsp. of olive oil in a skillet and over medium high heat and saute the mushrooms. Allow them to cook until they begin to get golden then add in the chopped onion and garlic. Cook another 3-5 minutes until the onion is translucent.
  3. Add the 3 tbsp. of butter to the pan. When it's almost melted, stir in the flour. Cook the flour and butter mixture for 30 seconds.
  4. Gradually pour in the warmed milk as you stir. The mixture will thicken. If it becomes too thick add more milk . The mixture should coat the back of a spoon.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat and add in the Parmesan cheese, Greek Yogurt, salt and pepper to taste. Toss in the green beans and turn them in the sauce.
  6. Top the mixture with the fried onions and panko bread crumbs. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes until the top is golden and bubbly.

Recipe Notes

Make it Gluten Free:  I noticed they do sell french fried onions in the store gluten free. You could omit the bread crumbs or use a gluten free version.
