Healthy Green Beans topped with Feta Cheese

Hello! I hope you are all doing well. 🙂    I decided to come back with lighter recipe,  I thought you would enjoy this version of Green Beans for lunch or dinner.  🙂

Ingredients:

800 grams Fresh or Frozen Green Beans

2 cloves of garlic                                                          

1/2 cup of Olive Oil

1 medium size Onion or 1 Leek

4 or 5  sliced Potatoes

4 sliced Fresh Tomatoes or 1 tablespoon of Tomato Paste

Feta Cheese for topping

Salt and Pepper

Water

Preparation:

Wash the fresh green beans, and  set aside until the water has drained completely. If your going to be using frozen, no need to defrost or cut the tips.  Take a batch of green beans and place onto your cutting board, and start cutting off  each tip of each side.  Once you have finished this step,  dice the onion, or leek,  potatoes, tomatoes, and garlic.

Set a large pot on low temperature,  and saute the Onion or Leek by adding 5 tablespoons of olive oil.  Then add all the diced ingredients, stir.   Combine into your mix the green beans, then add water and cover.

Tip: I like to substitute the onion with Leek the taste is stronger.  If your using tomato paste just add the 1 tablespoon into your mixture. Add water, but just enough to not completely cover the green bean. Since, beans tend to float to the top of the pot, there is one little trick that you can do to help them stay in place,  add a small plate on top of the beans so this holds them down until a bit of water has evaporated.  Take the plate out about half a hour later.

This needs about 1 hr. 30 minutes to cook, on low heat temperature and until sauce has thickened.  Top  with Feta Cheese, and enjoy with a nice slice of  fresh bread, splashed with olive oil.

Oh! one more thing, I will be posting 2 recipes a week, I hope that you enjoy them.  🙂
