Green Bean Casserole

Treat your taste buds and your eyes with this delicious green bean casserole, one of the most requested holiday dishes! Fresh green beans are an excellent source of several vitamins that contribute to healthy eyes.  Green beans may not show it, but they contain the same pigments that give vegetables their red, yellow and orange colors. These pigments are called carotenoids. They all function as antioxidants, which helps to reduce the risk of developing serious Age-Related Eye Disease.

While you can substitute canned or frozen beans, they lose some vitamins during processing. We love to stir-fry green beans with any other favorite veggies or meat, but we’ll definitely be cooking up some green bean casserole this holiday season! Enjoy the delicious recipe below.

1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
