Print Friendly and PDF

This is another easy to make Greek recipe. It's a delicious lunchtime meal, especially when accompanied by a slice of Feta cheese.


1 kg fresh green beans
3 medium potatoes sliced
1 large onion grated
½ kg ripe fresh tomatoes pureed
1 clove garlic chopped
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
100 ml olive oil
100 ml water
Salt and pepper


Cur off the two ends on the beans and remove the thread(s) along the side(s) if there are any.

Gently fry the grated onion in the olive oil in a pan for 2 minutes.

Add the chopped garlic and fry for another minute.

Add the green beans and potatoes and stir for another minute.

Add the tomato puree, water and seasoning, cover the pan and simmer for 1 hour.

If the liquid hasn’t been absorbed by this time, uncover the pan and bring to the boil for a short time.

Add the parsley and boil for 2 – 3 minutes.

I'm not Greek, but I live in Greece. Few days ago I prepared Fasolakia and followed your recipe. My Greek friends were amazed; one of them even said it reminded him of his grandmother's dish. Thanks :)
