Greek Beans and Potatoes (Fasolia)

This is another one from my yiayia! It's a traditional greek dish, best served on its own with a sprinkle of feta (my fave!) 

Serves 4-5
1 brown onion, diced finely 
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 long red chilli, deseeded and chopped
1 tbsp tomato paste 
1/2 cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
2 tbsp. olive oil 
8 baby potatoes, peeled and halved
400g string beans, tips and tails cut 
1 cup crushed tomato 
1.5 cup vegetable stock or water 


  1. In a deep pot, heat olive oil over a medium to high heat. 
  2. Add onion, garlic, chilli and parsley into the pot and stir for 3-4 minutes, or until onion becomes translucent. 
  3. Add tomato paste and stir for 1 minute.
  4. Add potatoes and string beans and stir for 1-2 minutes.  
  5. Add tomato puree and water (or veggie stock) and stir. Season with salt and pepper. 
  6. Cover with a lid and cook for 10-20 minutes or until your veggies are cooked through. If mixture is too runny, take out veggies and leave it on a high heat to thicken, then throw veggies back in. 
  7. For more flavour, serve with feta!
