Traditional Greek Green Beans (Fasolakia Giaxni)
This Traditional Greek Green Beans recipe (Fasolakia Giaxni) had me rethinking that delicious and healthy do go together.
A combination of Green beans, sweet onions and fresh, juicy tomatoes cooked steaming.
Then it is further classified as “Ladera”, meaning Greek dishes prepared only with olive oil, with no addition of other fat. Giaxni means steaming and Giaxni is a technique used in authentic Greek cooking. The Greeks steam anything from fish, meat, or vegetables.
This delicious hearty, healthy traditional Greek Fasolakia Giaxni vegetarian meal or as a side dish garnished with some salty, crumbled feta on top!
I find this so passionate, ”To prepare this Greek green beans recipe (fasolakia giaxni), the onions are first sautéed, until tender and sweet and the beans are simmered in a tomato based sauce, until all the flavours mingle, and garnished with chopped parsley.” So beautifully, explained and all the details are in these words.
Nothing more to add people remember I am the person who avoids french beans so if I am saying this was a good vegetable it has to be good. The other french beans that I like are Avrikai Palya and French Beans Foogath.
Team it with pita bread or with spinach rice and tzatziki. I am in heaven maybe with a tiny space for something sweet but I am too lazy to move.
