The first thing I did was prepare the stuffing topping for the casserole.  

I broke up half a loaf of gluten free bread into a large mixing bowl.

Then I diced some onion and celery before dumping them in on top of the bread.

Next I prepared the chicken broth and stirred some sage, salt and pepper into it.

I melted some margarine in the microwave before I poured it over the vegetables and cubed bread.

To make sure the stuffing would still be moist after baking I poured the chicken broth with the seasonings mixed in over top of all the ingredients in the bowl and stirred until everything was wet.

I set the stuffing topping aside and cut cranberries in half and measured out some chopped walnuts.

At this time I also sliced half a yellow onion and a cup of carrots.

After pouring olive oil into a large frying pan I dumped in the cranberries, walnuts, onions and carrots.

I sauteed them, stirring occasionally until the onion was just beginning to soften.  I removed them from the heat.

Now I prepared the sauce.  First, I dropped some margarine into a large sauce pan and let it melt over medium heat.

Melting the margarine.

Then I added in some Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend.

Adding the flour.

I stirred in the flour to form a paste.

Making the paste.

Then I poured in a bit of almond milk and stirred until it was smooth.  After it was smooth I added in the remaining almond milk.

Adding some of the milk to the paste.

I removed the sauce from the heat just before it started to boil and stirred in some onion powder, salt and pepper.  

Then I added the ingredients I had sauteed in the frying pan.

Next I opened 2 cans of green beans and drained them before adding them to the sauce pan.

I stirred until all the ingredients were combined.

Once everything was combined I sprayed a 9×13 inch pan with cooking spray.  Then I spread the mixture from the sauce pan evenly in the prepared baking pan.

Now I spread the stuffing that I had prepared earlier evenly across the top of the bean mixture.

I placed it in a 375F oven for 35 minutes until the stuffing was golden brown and the sauce was bubbling.

Festive Green Bean Casserole is a delicious addition to any meal.
