Greek Style Green Beans Recipe

Greek Style Green Beans Recipes

Ingredients :

1 lb green beans (Blue Lakes preferred), trimmed and cut in 2-inch lengths

1/2 cup vegetable stock

1 onion, chopped or thinly sliced

1 garlic clove, finely minced

1.5 tsp dried oregano

3/4 cup peeled, seeded and diced tomato

1 tbsp tomato puree (optional)

salt and pepper

lemon wedges, for garnish

Method :

Drop green beans into a large pot of salted water and cook until firm-tender or al dente. Drain and refresh in ice water. Drain again and set aside.

Bring the vegetable stock to a boil in a large sauté pan. Add the onion and simmer, covered, until tender and translucent, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic, oregano, tomato and optional tomato puree and simmer about 5 minutes. Add the green beans and simmer until tender and some of the sauce is absorbed, 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with lemon wedges.

Serves 4

The Greeks are not of the al dente vegetable school and this ragout of tender green beans braised with onion, tomatoes, and oregano may convince you that not all vegetables have to be crunchy and firm to be toothsome.
