Braised Green Beans - fasolia kon safanorya i patata
The Rhodeslis make a simple but utterly delicious vegetarian meal with young, plump green beans when they are in season.
The secret ingredient to this flavorsome dish is time. Time taken to gently braise the beans until ultra tender and velvety. The beans are cooked with paper thin sliced onions and garlic, parsley and dill with their stalks along with carrots, potatoes and ripe chopped fresh tomatoes with extra virgin olive oil.
I like fasolia served with a large cube of crumbly Greek feta and a vermicelli rice pilaf with crusty bread to mop up the sauce. Keep the leftovers to offer at room temperature as part of the meze table as is done in Turkey.
