Fresh Green Beans


While the original Greek recipe would call for much more olive oil where the beans are cooked in, this one is with much less making it lighter but still very flavourful.

  • 1kg fresh Green Beans , ends cut and side string removed
  • 2 medium Potatoes , peeled and cuts in mall cubes (about 3 cm)
  • 600g Tomato Pulp , (canned), preferably Mutti brand
  • 1 large Yellow Onions , finely minced
  • 1 Carrot , 1 sliced in rounds
  • 60ml EVOO , Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp Fine Sugar
  • 1000ml warm Water
  • 6 Bay Leaves
  • 4 tbsp fresh Parsley , leaves picked and finely chopped
  • tsp Sea Salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground Black Pepper


  • We place a large non-stick pot or casserole over medium heat and drizzle the oil. Once it heats up, after about 1’ we add the onions, the potatoes and the sliced carrots, sauteing for about 5’. Add the fresh beans, toss to get well coated with the oil and sauté for another 5’. Pour the 1000ml of warm water, increase the heat and bring to a boil. Then simmer for 25’ with the lid slightly askew.
  • Add the 600ml of the tomato pulp and the sugar, season with the salt and pepper and simmer, uncovered, for 15’ allowing for the sauce to thicken. Few minutes before the end add the chopped parsley and give it a gentle stir. Remove from the heat and serve either on its own or next to your favourite braised.
