Green bean casserole is a delicious classic that ends up in our Thanksgiving spreads. I love it, but I came up with a lightened up version that takes less time than the original and is still as tasty. 

It makes for a really great meal, and it’s made with some ingredients that you can grab from your local grocery store.

Ingredients in green goddess green beans:

  • 32 oz of green beans
  • ¼ cup of the green goddess dressing or marinade of your choice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to make green goddess green beans

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil

Boil your green beans for 2-3 minutes. 

Remove them and immediately place them into an ice bath to stop the cooking. 

Reheat your green beans (microwave is totally fine) for 1 minute. 

Season with salt, pepper, and drizzle with your favorite green goddess dressing. 

Optional: You can also add a sprinkle of fried onions to the top for the crunch factor

Enjoy!
