Grain-Free Green Bean Casserole

If you’re eating grain-free or gluten-free, you might be wondering how you are going to make all of the traditional holiday foods that you used to have. Right now you may be craving pumpkin pie, stuffing, rolls, mashed potatoes, and, of course; green bean casserole. I made up this version when we were on the GAPS Diet. It is a yummy substitute for the typical gluten-filled holiday side dish. You can find this recipe in my e-book, A Whole Food Holiday. It contains GAPS legal, grain-free, gluten-free versions of all of those holiday foods you’re craving!
