Fasolakia Me Patates kai Kolokithia (Stewed Green Beans with Potatoes and Zucchini)

July 7, 2014 by: Zoe Vlachos Recipes, Vegetarian

Sweet, stewed green beans, zucchini and potatoes are the ultimate summer Greek dish!  A good salty piece of feta cheese, olives and crusty bread (for dipping in the sauce) almost always accompany this dish.


  • 3 pounds green beans of choice, ends trimmed
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 medium size onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 4 medium sized potatoes, quartered
  • 2 medium sized zucchinis, thickly sliced
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup mint, chopped
  • 1 tbs. dill, chopped
  • 1 cup Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste


Heat the olive oil in a medium size pot, over medium high heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for a minute. Then add the green beans, zucchini,  potatoes, tomatoes,  parsley, mint and dill. Give those a stir and sauté or another couple of minutes. Add the water and season with salt and pepper. Bring liquid to a boil, then lower heat to medium low heat for 45 minutes.
