Ingredients

  • 2 tbsps butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup onion, diced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, thinly sliced and diced
  • 3 tbsps white whole wheat flour
  • 1½ cups skim milk
  • ⅔ cups plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 24 ounces frozen green beans
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated (optional)
  • ¼ cup Panko breadcrumbs

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt butter in a large saucepan and saute garlic, onion and mushrooms until soft – about 5 minutes.
  3. Add flour and stir well. Cook about 2 minutes to cook out the raw flour taste.
  4. Slowly add milk, stirring constantly to avoid clumping.
  5. Add yogurt, salt, onion, garlic and black pepper and reduce heat to simmer. Simmer 5-10 minutes until thickened.
  6. Add green beans to sauce and stir to combine.
  7. Pour green bean mixture into a casserole dish. Top with parmesan if desired and sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes.
