Greek Potatoes and Green Beans




Ethnic Green Bean Recipe

Another winning recipe from Keeping in the Greek tradition the green beans are cooked with tomatoe and potatoes.

According to my Greek friend Karen this is the way her mother would present this dish, but she says that she would consider adding some garlic and oregano to jazz it up a bit.

Greek Potatoes and Green Beans


3 lbs. Baking Potatoes
1-1/2 lbs. Green Beans, French cut
1 Onion, medium size, diced
1 cup Parsley, fresh, finely chopped
1-6 oz. can of Tomato Paste


Wash and peel the potatoes and cut into 1/2" to 3/4" cubes and place in a covered baking dish. If the Green Beans are fresh, wash and cut of the stem ends and split lengthwise, and add to the baking dish. If the Green Beans are frozen, just add to the baking dish. Add the Onions and Parsley. Add the Tomato Paste and rinse the can out with a little water (1/4 can) and add to the baking dish. Cook in a microwave on high or in a regular oven at 350 degrees F. Mix the ingredients every 10 to 15 minutes. When the onions become semi translucent and the potatoes are soft remove from the oven. Total cooking time should be about 45 minutes.
