This is a simple and delicious recipe served everywhere in Greece, often eaten as part of a big family meal or as a side to meat dishes. We love to eat Fasolakia with a hunk of crusty bread and a bit of crumbled feta cheese, but you can make it into a more substantial meal by adding some new potatoes and Kalamata olives (this is quite common in Greece). Be sure to use good quality olive oil, and to make up a big batch as the beans are delicious served cold the next day too!

1
Heat the olive in a heavy bottomed pan and sweat down the onion and garlic with a pinch of salt over a gentle heat. Keep stirring the mix – you want to soften the onion without any colour
2
Next add the beans and stir to combine, then add the tin of tomatoes and water. Bring to the boil and simmer on a low heat for 45-60 minutes
3
After this amount of time, the sauce should have reduced and should cling to the tender beans
4
Taste and season with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice. Fold through the parsley and dill and serve
