One of my favourite late summer dishes. I serve it as a stew, with fresh bread and butter, or else I ladle it over steamed rice. I guess you could serve it as a side dish but I think of it as a nice vegetarian supper. Reheats beautifully. If you can find decent green beans in the winter, you can make this with canned crushed tomatoes - 2 or 3 cups depending on how soupy you would like it.
- 2 cups green beans (450g) or 2 cups wax beans (450g)
- 4 large tomatoes
- 1 medium onion
- 2 large potatoes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
- 1⁄4 teaspoon fennel seed
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt & pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
- Wash and trim the beans, and cut them into bite sized pieces.
- Wash, trim and cut the potatoes in 1 cm dice.
- Boil the potatoes and the beans separately until just tender.
- Peel and chop the tomatoes and the onion.
- Sauté them in the olive oil until the tomatoes fall apart and the mixture thickens slightly.
- Add the seasonings and the drained potatoes and beans, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes to amalgamate.
I made this for dinner last night, and really enjoyed it. I did everything as directed, and only added some seasoned salt to the veggies. It came out soooo good! I served the potato mixture over brown rice with breadsticks. I guess what attracted me to this recipe was the ingredients-- i actually had all of them on hand. We are on a tight budget, and these ingredients are either always in the kitchen, or very inexpensive to go pick up. Thanks for posting! I will definately make this again!
