DIRECTIONS

  • If using fresh beans cut off the tips on both ends and if necessary remove strings along the edges.
  • Heat the olive oil in a pan and fry the onions and garlic until softened.
  • Add the beans and fold gently a few times until beans soften up a bit.
  • Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper & paprika and 300 ml of boiling water, bring to the boil and simmer for half an hour.
  • Add potatoes and make sure they are just covered in the water. (Add more boiling water if necessary). Cover pan and simmer for 1-1½ hours or until potatoes are very soft.
  • Turn heat off and stir in the cinnamon. DO NOT ommit the cinnamon. This is what makes this dish really special.
  • Garnish with parsley (optional) and serve with fresh bread and feta cheese.
  • Can also be eaten cold.
