Green Bean Casserole {GAPS}

I was scared that when we entered GAPS I would have to give up some favorites. Instead I’m just finding new ways to make my favorites even better!

Green bean casserole

I love green bean casserole. I had made a simple version with “cream of cauliflower” soup (cauliflower florets cooked in crock pot or boiled in pan of stock and then blended with a hand blender) and beans, but I really missed the crunchy topping. So when I made the hash browns I knew that was just what I needed to top it off!

Hash Browns with no potatoes! {GAPS}

How did I do it?

All I used was:

Celeriac

1 Large Celeriac
Ghee
Sea salt

After washing and peeling the celeriac I ran it through the food processor to grate it.

I melted the ghee in a frying pan over medium heat. When it started bubbling a bit I added the grated celeriac, sautéing it for about ten minutes, then added salt. I watched for it to get soft and then spread it out in the pan letting it sit to get a little brown on the underside. With GAPS you can’t let it get too crunchy (hard to digest) so I watched it carefully and ended up flipping it over after about seven minutes. After letting it brown on the bottom side it was time to serve up!
