A wonderful, easy way to cook green beans. This recipe was passed along to me when I attended a Greek Orthodox Church in Boston. Delicious!

Great flavor combination. I didn't use the mint or fennel but did use 2 cups of chicken broth. It was really nice to have a new way to eat the many green beans my garden produced this year. I will keep this recipe handy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean and de-stem green beans. Leave whole or cut to bite size pieces if you prefer.
  2. (If you prefer your green beans more on the crispy side, saute the onion and garlic in 2 Tbsp of the olive oil before the next step.).
  3. Put all ingredients into stock pot. Add only enough water or stock to keep beans from sticking. (I have made these with chicken stock as well).
  4. Cover and cook until tender, stirring frequently, about 20 minutes.
