Vegan Green Bean Casserole! The Thanksgiving Classic Recreated (Cruelty-Free).

 

A delicious vegan take on a classic Thanksgiving side dish! Green Bean Casserole!

Traditionally made with the classic Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup, we have swapped this for a homemade base that leaves out the dairy. Not only is this super easy and cruelty-free, but it is a much healthier version as well.
