While that means you probably wouldn't want this on your Thanksgiving table, I'm almost certain you'd enjoy it any other night of the week! Since I've never liked the traditional dish, I simply used the parts I liked- green beans, mushrooms and onions. Onions got caramelized, green beans got roasted, and then I made this killer goat cheese mushroom sauce... that I would eat on it's own!
Goat Cheese Mushroom Sauce
adapted from Cake, Batter & Bowl
This is great over some pasta or roasted veggies (like green beans!)
1T white whole wheat flour
1/2c almond milk
5oz goat cheese
12oz sauteed or roasted mushrooms
1/2t sea salt
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and whisk well, then continue to cook for a minute or two. While whisking, slowly add in milk. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat. Crumble in goat cheese and whisk until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth. Add in mushroooms and salt, then taste and adjust seasonings. Keep warm until serving.
