Green Bean Casserole

My final Thanksgiving recipe! Green bean casserole has always been one of my favorite dishes on Thanksgiving – there was no way it wasn’t making its way onto the vegan menu this year. Honestly, I think this recipe is way better than any other ones I’ve ever had/made . . . very pleased with how it came out!
