  • 4 c. green beans bite-sized pieces
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 c. mushrooms chopped
  • 1/4 c. onion chopped
  • 3 tbsp. arrowroot powder
  • 1 c. chicken or turkey stock
  • 1/2 c. sprouted flour
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika
  • 1 egg
  • 1 small onion thinly sliced
  • Lard or avocado oil


  • First, in a small bowl, mix together flour, salt, pepper, and paprika
  • In another small bowl, mix together egg and milk.
  • In a frying pan, heat lard or oil over medium heat, about 1/2" deep.  Dip the separated, sliced onions into the milk/egg mixture, then into the flour mixture.  Fry over medium heat until golden brown.  Put them on a plate lined with a towel and set aside.
  • Put the green beans in a steamer basket in a 4-qt. pot with some water on the bottom.  Cover it and turn it on low.  Steam the green beans 10 - 15 minutes, or until tender (don't let them lose color).
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter.  Add the chopped onions and mushrooms and saute until onions are soft and mushrooms are done.
  • Add the arrowroot powder and a bit of salt and pepper.  Stir until smooth.  Add the stock and milk and cook and stir until thickened.
  • Put the steamed green beans into a 11x7 or 8x8 casserole dish.  Add the mushroom sauce and some of the fried onions.  Stir to combine, and add salt and pepper to taste.  Top with more fried onions.
  • Bake at 350 for 20 - 25 minutes, until bubbling.  Serve immediately.
