  1. 1

    Roast Potatoes and Prepare Ingredients

    Peel and cut sweet potatoes into 1" dice. Place on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Spread into a single layer and roast until tender, 20-24 minutes. Keep warm

    While potatoes cook, trim ends off green beans. Cut into 2" pieces.

    Cut mushrooms into thin slices.

    Coarsely chop pepitas.

  2. 2

    Cook the Green Beans and Mushrooms

    Heat 3 Tbsp. water in a large non-stick pan over medium heat.

    Once steam begins to appear, add green beans and cook until bright green and tender, 4-6 minutes.

    Transfer beans to one prepared casserole dish. For best results use an 8" dish.

    Wipe pan clean and place over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil, mushrooms, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Cook until browned and tender, 5-7 minutes.

  3. 3

    Assemble the Casserole

    Add cream to pan with mushrooms. Bring to a simmer and cook until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 4-6 minutes.

    Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Pour cream-mushroom mixture over green beans.

  4. 4

    Assemble the Sweet Potato Mash

    Transfer sweet potatoes to second prepared casserole dish. For best results use an 8" dish.

    Mash until smooth. Mix in cinnamon sugar and a pinch of salt and pepper.

    In a mixing bowl, make streusel by combining rolled oats, pepitas, brown sugar, and butter.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Top mashed sweet potatoes with streusel. Sprinkle crispy onions over green beans. Roast both until golden brown, 3-5 minutes.

    Serve from casserole dishes. Bon appétit!
