Tomato & Green Bean Casserole


Tomato & Green Bean Casserole with Spicy Herb Pesto is a super healthy meal that your whole family will love. To make this casserole vegan, simply substitute Cheddar cheese with a dairy free alternative. 

Start by bringing the green beans to a boil in a large pot of water. Make a pesto by pulsing chopped herbs, pistachio nuts, jalapeño, lime juice, garlic, cumin and salt in a food processor. Mix the beans with the pesto in a casserole dish and sprinkle the top with cheese. Cook under the broiler and serve warm!

Steps to make Tomato & Green Bean Casserole


Cook green beans


Cook green beans in a large pot of boiling water for 4 - 6 minutes until crisp-tender. Drain completely and rinse with cold water to cool.


Preheat broiler


Place a metal rack in the upper third of your oven and turn the broiler to high to preheat.


Make pesto


Place ½ a cup of chopped herbs, ¼ cup pistachios, 1-3 tablespoons of chopped jalapeño (to taste), 1 tablespoon of lime juice, a small clove garlic, ¾ teaspoon of ground cumin and ½ a teaspoon of salt in a food processor. Pulse until the ingredients are finely chopped. Scrape down the sides. With the motor still running, add ¼ cup of olive oil and continue to process until fully combined.


Place green beans in casserole dish


Remove excess water from the green beans by patting them dry with a paper towel. Place the beans in a 9 x 13-inch broiler-safe pan. Mix through the pesto sauce and 1 cup of cherry tomatoes until fully combined. Sprinkle with ½ a cup of (vegan) cheese.




Place the casserole under the broiler until the cheese melts.


Chop pistachios


Chop the remaining ¼ cup of pistachio nuts.



Sprinkle the casserole with the chopped pistachio nuts and serve immediately.

The lime juice made it kinda zesty which was amazing, really woke me up for sure!

Britney Foy

Not very filling, I'd recommend this with something else like some meat or bread.

Adrienne Lauf

When you see this plate you think that it wouldn't make you full but it actually does because of the tomatos and beans.

Celia Strommen

Made this for the entire family for lunch on Saturday and they added some meat to theirs, i'm the only vegan so i stayed true, ultra flavourful.

Maryam Tennesen

Instead of adding green beans I scrapped the beans all together--i know it's part of the recipe but the taste was perfect without it anyways.

Kensley Reifsnyder

Love vegan food so much, everything is so healthy and flavourful, go vegan!

Carla Romane

This green bean casserole and the beef and veggie recipe are my two favorites.

Blaire Delach

It was alright kinda plain though so you should probably add some more spices to it, just my opinion though.

Janice Matherly

One of the best casseroles out there, it's extremely flavourful and easy to make plus the ingridents are cheap.

Alanah Scarcia

My kids actually enjoyed this meal despite it having a lot of healty ingridents they ate it all, lol.

Aubri Taliento

Brought this in for lunch at work today and everyone wanted to know where I got the recipe from.

My first reaction was "okay" until i added a little bit of paprika spice and some more lime juice, then it was perfect.

Zahra Daugs

Brilliant idea for a healthy lunch or dinner, would recommend it so much!
