Green Bean Casserole Ingredients:

  • 1 lb green beans or haricot verts
  • ¼ cup Old Pal infused butter
  • 1 medium onion, sliced in half moons
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 TBSP miso
  • 11 oz cream of mushroom 
  • 2 TBSP soy sauce
  • ½ TSP garlic salt
  • ½ TBSP ground black pepper
  • 8 oz crispy fried onions

Step 1: Weed Butter

What you’ll need:

How to decarboxylate your cannabis to activate the THC:

  1. Preheat the oven to 230 degrees Fahrenheit (110 degrees Celsius)
  2. Spread the weed onto parchment paper inside a baking pan
  3. Put the weed in the oven and bake for 45 minutes

*Note: While your weed is decarbing, boil a pot of water.

Infusing the butter:

  1. Add a stick of butter to the French press and put the decarbed weed on top
  2. Put the French press into the pot of boiling water and simmer for 45 minutes

Press down on the French press and pour out your butter while it’s still warm.

Pro tip: Make a double batch and whip up some chocolatey Old Pal brownies for dessert!

Step 2: Blanch Green Beans

To blanch green beans, bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat and add salt (estimate one tablespoon per quart). This will brighten the flavor of the beans. Then, add the green beans to the boiling water and cook for two to three minutes.

Strain, and let them cool for a few minutes. Then, cut the green beans in half. 

Step 3: Prep the Onions and Garlic

Slice the ends from the onions and cut the whole onion in half. Place the flat side down and slice your onion to create half-moon shapes. 

Chop the garlic as finely as you prefer. Before you saute the onions and garlic, it’s a good time to preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 4: Saute Onions and Garlic in Infused Butter

Put a saucepan over medium-high heat and add the ¼ cup Old Pal infused butter. Once it starts sizzling, stir in the onions and garlic. No need to cook it through, just enough to let the onions sweat. This should take three to five minutes. 

Next, add the miso to the saucepan and stir into the onions and garlic.

Step 5: Build the Casserole

Put the cut green beans in the casserole dish. Add the garlic and onions, cream of mushrooms, soy sauce, garlic salt, and black pepper. Mix everything well and spread evenly across the casserole dish. 

Step 6: Bake!

Bake the casserole for 30 minutes. Take that tasty dish out of the oven and sprinkle it with as many crispy fried onions as your heart desires. Then, bake for another five minutes. 

This will bring out more of that oniony goodness. Serve it up and enjoy it with your pals!
