Gluten Free, Dairy Free Green Bean Casserole
I LOVE Green Bean Casserole for the holidays but it's not necessarily the healthiest of dishes. Sure it's a vegetable but its laced with dairy and wheat; the two most common inflammatory foods that can make many people's health concerns worse. Despite being diary, wheat, sugar, or some other "comfort food" free, you can still enjoy tasty food.
