Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion until tender, about 10 minutes. Mix remaining olive oil, green beans, tomatoes, potato, mint, parsley, salt, and pepper into onion, adding enough water to cover the whole mixture. Bring liquid to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 1 hour.

Cook's Notes:

I like to use French-cut green beans. Optional recipe uses fresh green beans, which affects cooking time.

Substitute 3 tablespoons fresh mint for the dried, if desired.

I used the right ingredients but mine were fresh except for the tomatoes. I sauteed the onions and potatoes together so when the other ingredients were added everything only cooked a few more minutes. My chocolate mint really came out in this and I loved it! DH didn't notice there was mint in the dish! Great idea! Read More

Greeks don't make Fasolakia from a can. Use real string beans and snap off the ends first. Read More
