GREEK STYLE GREEN BEANS



Greek Style Green Beans image

This recipe was adapted from a recipe posted in the Houston Chronicle. The key is to make the tomato sauce separately and serve on top of the beans. This method keeps the green beans crisp tender, and a bright green color. When the tomatoes and beans are cooked together the acidity turns the beans a dark olive color.

FASOLAKIA (GREEK GREEN BEANS)



Fasolakia (Greek Green Beans) image

Fasolakia are Greek green beans stewed with olive oil and tomato, with a few pieces of potato added for good measure. This is a main dish in Greece, not a side dish, and a prime example of plant-based eating! Good crusty bread is essential for mopping up the sauce and I always need to have a healthy chunk of feta on the side. Serve fasolakia warm or at room temperature for best flavor.

1 ½ pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
4 tomatoes, pureed
2 yellow potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
ground black pepper to taste
1 pinch white sugar
water to cover

Steps:

  • Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and stir in onion. Cook until onion has softened, about 5 minutes. Add green beans and stir to coat in the oil. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes. Add pureed tomato, potatoes, salt, pepper, and sugar. Stir well, then add water until beans are barely covered.
  • Bring to a simmer, partially cover with a lid, and cook gently over medium-low heat until green beans and potatoes are soft, 25 to 30 minutes. Uncover towards the end of cooking to reduce sauce if it is too watery.
