Fasolakia is an absolutely genius Greek way to prepare green string beans. Slowly stewed along with tomatoes and onions, later sprinkled with fresh parsley leaves is another fantastic vegetarian dish taken from the Greek cuisine that is often hosted on our table during the summer season.
We also strongly encourage those who do not like this type of beans to try it. Bean made according to this recipe will show its delicious face.
1. Rinse the beans under running water and cut the ends.
2. In a deep pan or a pot, warm up with olive oil and add onions, beans and tomatoes. Pour some water, season and cook under cover over medium heat for about 40 minutes.
3. At the end we can remove the lid to evaporate the excess water and only a thick tomato sauce remains. Just before removing from the fire, sprinkle the dish with chopped parsley and ready.
Dishes from beans and other legumes are an important part of the Greek diet. The most well-known examples of such dishes are giant plums, fasolada or fava. Nowadays, Greeks often reach for traditional dishes with legumes, which are served as the main meal. Today we present a recipe for beans in tomatoes. Its preparation is easy and less labor-intensive than eg giant gaps.
Although the recipe for kolokithokeftedes has been on our site for a long time, we decided to publish the second version of the recipe. Kolokithokeftedes in this way we ate recently with our Cretan friends. Pancakes prepared in this way have tasted us so much that we asked for a way of preparing :)
Zucchini in Greek cuisine is ubiquitous. Kolokithopita is in Poland a less known way to use this popular vegetable. Kolokithopita in taste is very subtle and delicate, so combining it with, for example, tzatziki sauce will cause that the garlic contained in the sauce will dominate its taste.
