Veggie Bean Alfredo Casserole:
This Veggie Bean Alfredo Casserole is stuffed full of veggies and has the added bonus of protein and fiber from garbanzo beans. I love all the veggies in this casserole dish blended with the bean Alfredo sauce. Adding garganzo beans to this veggie dish adds protein which is great healthy bonus for all and especially a bonus for vegetarians. It’s a perfect warm side vegetable dish addition to a Thanksgiving, holiday, or any winter meal.
When the garbanzo beans are pureed, they blend easily with the Alfredo sauce, parmesan cheese, and milk. This hearty and healthy recipe has the taste of a holiday comfort food dish but has the extra benefit of lots of fiber. The golden fried onions on top of the casserole add a delicious satisfying crunch to the tasty veggies beneath. I use already prepared Alfredo sauce in a jar because this makes the side dish easier and quicker to prepare. However homemade Alfredo sauce would be a delicious substitution.
All the Veggies!
The vegetables included in this scrumptious dish include Brussels sprouts, yellow pepper, onion, cauliflower, mushrooms, and artichoke hearts. For those who dislike Brussels sprouts, this is the way to eat them because their flavor blends in beautifully and the flavor of them is completely blended. Meaning the taste of the Brussels Sprouts is not apparent. I love Brussels Sprouts but not all people enjoy this flavor. More vegetables in diet is a goal for many and this dish adds a good helping of vegetables to a meal.
