There’s a Greek green bean stew called fasolakia, I think I’ve posted about it before, but it’s very nice, so here goes anyway.
Gently fry plenty of chopped onion and a couple of cloves of garlic in a couple of tbsps of olive oil, add a couple of tins of good chopped tomatoes (or fresh equivalent if you’ve got a glut of those too), add maybe one tin of water, not too much, and a couple of veg stock cubes, plus a load of beans, ends trimmed. Plus lots of chopped parsley and black pepper.
Bring to boil and simmer gently for at least an hour, but you can also cook it in the oven or maybe the slow cooker.
We’re recently back from Greece and I fancied some, so just made a batch with frozen beans, dunked in boiling water first to thaw and get any ice off.
Serve with fresh crusty bread to mop up all the lovely juices. I have been known to add some cubes of fried halloumi, too.
A good dish for any vegan guests, too.
