I’m very excited about having Naomi from Booberrit on my blog today. She knows a thing or two about keeping the family happy and today she is sharing a Greek recipe! I’m looking forward to making this at home myself because it looks delicious. If any of you guys try this at home, please tag us both, we would love to hear what you think!
Naomi – There’s nothing quite like a rustic Greek dish to warm your heart and tummy. This basic beans and potato stew is an absolute family fave in our house. Not only for its comforting qualities but because its a great dish for weaning babies and is full to the brim with vitamin C and iron. The perfect combo to power an underslept mum and her overactive kids!

· 8 Cyprus Potatoes
· 250g of Green beans
· 2 cloves of garlic
· 1 box of pasata
· Olive oil
· Salt & pepper (for seasoning)
· Bring a pan of water to the boil
· Add your potatoes (peeled and quartered) a long with your peeled garlic cloves to the boiling water and boil for 10-15 mins
· Then add the beans and allow to boil for a further 5 minutes
· Drain the water and put back on a low heat, drizzle with olive oil-enough to lightly glaze all the vegetables

Fasolia in Greek simply means beans. Every region will have a different bean dish that they refer to as ‘Fasolia’, depending on where in Greece you go. For this dish we recommend some feta seasoned with dried oregano and lightly drizzled in Sitian olive oil.
