Fasolakia (Greek Green Beans)
If you can find them, use Romano beans, also called runner beans. These are the green beans traditionally used in Greece for fasolakia. If you use them, be sure to peel the stringy sides off of the beans using a vegetable peeler, and trim the ends.
I usually add more olive oil than called for here; add 1 to 2 tablespoons more, or to taste, for a delicious result.
For some protein, you can brown 4 to 6 skinless chicken drumsticks in the olive oil before adding the onion, then follow the recipe as written.
