This updated version of the iconic green bean casserole has 53% less sodium than its traditional counterpart. This version has beneficial omega-3 fatty acids as a result of the added walnuts.

I'm anxious to try this! Using fresh stringbeans and low sodium chicken broth will certainly help those of us on low sodium diets. In addition, walnuts and the crushed whole grain croutons as a topping is far more healthy than the original standby. I look forward to using this as a dish for Thanksgiving when the family gets together. Thank you.
Sounds great. Am going to take this to a pot luck supper this month. Thanks.
This is a little more work than the "soup" recipe, but WELL WORTH IT! You'll never eat the other stuff again!
