Non Dairy Beet Green Casserole

This beet green casserole can really be made with any hardy winter green, I think escarole, chard and kale would all work well. If you are making dairy you can probably add cheese, but it really does not need it. It sits well and reheats great and is a perfect substitute for a Green Bean Casserole.


  • Prep Time : 20 min
  • Cook Time : 45 min
  • Ready Time : 1 hour, 5 min




  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 leek, sliced and cleaned well
  • 1 8 oz. pack of mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 bunches of beet greens or Swiss chard, leaves only, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon margarine
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup non dairy milk, I used almond milk
  • salt, pepper and nutmeg
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs or homemade bread crumbs or cracker crumbs or French's fried onions


Prepare 8-9 inch pie pan or 8 ramekins with cooking spray.

Preheat oven to 375.

Heat oil over medium high heat in a large frying pan.  Add leek and saute for a minute to soften.  Add mushrooms and saute another couple of minutes.  Then add chopped beet greens saute until wilted. Remove from heat an set aside.

In a separate small pot, heat margarine over medium heat.  Add the flour and stir it quickly with a whisk and cook for 1 minute.  Add milk a little at a time, whisking it to form a smooth mixture with each addition.  Bring to a gentle simmer and cook for 5-7 minutes stirring continuously. Season the sauce with salt and pepper and nutmeg to taste.

Stir into greens mixture and then place the entire mixture into prepared pan or pans.  Top with topping of choice, spray with cooking spray and bake for 45 minutes until golden brown on top.

  1. I make something really similar and I put a raw egg in it. Makes a good brunch dish.
