Simmered Green Beans

Updated: Sep 25, 2023

This is my take on Greek Green Beans. I spent a couple of months roaming about Greece in my younger years. I absolutely loved the food. One of my favorites were these green beans that simmered all day long. I thought they would be mush, but they were sturdy and very flavorful. I ended up looking for these in any town I went to as I was mad about them. Thank goodness they are a staple of Greek cuisine and I could find them almost everywhere.

The beans are cooked in a tomato sauce with onions, garlic, herbs, and a significant amount of extra virgin olive oil These are often often served with feta cheese and bread.

Greek green beans can be served as a side dish or as a light main course. They can also be added to salads or wraps. Some popular food pairings for Greek green beans include:

  • Feta cheese

  • Bread

  • Pita bread

  • Rice

  • Potatoes

  • Grilled chicken or fish

  • Yogurt

  • Lemon juice

  • Olive oil

Greek green beans are a healthy and delicious dish that is perfect for any occasion. They are a good source of vitamins A and C, and they are low in calories. So next time you are looking for a healthy and flavorful side dish, be sure to try Greek green beans.

Here are some additional tips for making Greek green beans:

  • Use fresh green beans whenever possible.

  • If you are using frozen green beans, thaw them completely before cooking.

  • Add a splash of lemon juice to the dish at the end of cooking. This will help to brighten the flavors.

  • Serve the Greek green beans with a dollop of feta cheese and a drizzle of olive oil.

I hope you enjoy this delicious and healthy dish!
