Green Beans with potatoes - Fasolakia -

For this dish, freshly grated tomatoes is a very important ingredient that makes all the difference. If you use canned tomatoes it would be like eating a totally different meal, and believe me, grating a few tomatoes will absolutely be worth your time and effort after you taste it in the end!

You can serve Green Beans with Feta and enjoy a delicious and easy lunch recipe, or you can accompany it with any meat you like! Both are delicious combinations you could eat your Green Beans with.

In Greece, where I live, we call this dish “Fasolakia” and it is a very popular “Ladero” (with-plenty-of-oil) dish.
