There are lower carb versions with a fraction of the carbs. Flour, bread crumbs & evaporated milk add quite a few. 14.9 carbs for a 1/2 cup is a lot for such a small portion. Don't know many people who can eat 1/2 cup of a casserole:) There are healthier alternatives to wheat products & evaporated milk.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Laura,

Here's one recipe I've used with a few changes
I use fresh green beans (parboiled) & fresh mushrooms instead of canned. I add 1/4 cup of heavy cream to get a more creamy sauce, which adds very few carbs to the total recipe. I leave out celery because I can't stand cooked celery. Celery isn't an ingredient in traditional green bean casserole anyway. If people prefer a topping, mix together 1.5 cups of almond flour with 3-4 TBS with softened butter. Add crumbles to the top.

Have a fun Thanksgiving!
