Potatoes, Tomatoes and Beans

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Jenny Sanders

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.

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!
