Place the oven rack in the middle level and preheat to 350°F. Lightly grease a 3-quart casserole. Set aside.
Heat the oil over medium heat in a 5-quart stockpot. Add the onions and garlic and cook for 3–4 minutes, or until the onions are translucent.
Add the black pepper, salt, thyme, and green beans. Stir and cook for 4 more minutes. Reduce the heat to medium low, pour in the condensed soup and milk, and stir until well combined. Add the cooked rice and stir until fully incorporated.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 20–25 minutes, or until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Sprinkle the fried onions on top and bake for another 10 minutes.
