So Many Greenbeans!

Here’s a recipe I found for green beans at a Daily Breeze link about CSA’s. For the whole article, see the link on the right, under Recipes. FASSOLAKIA (Braised Green Beans) I tried this recipe and didn’t like it much, but maybe you will. I decided to keep it in this post, only because it seems like a tease to tell you I’ve got green bean recipes and then not give you one.1 pound green beans1 onion3 cloves garlic2 tablespoons olive oil4 small potatoes, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces2 cups chicken or vegetable broth1 (14-ounce) can chopped tomatoes1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsleySalt and pepper, to tasteStem green beans and cut them in half.
