Fassolakia Lathera || Greek Green Bean Casserole

I have a friend in town from Colorado. She requested Greek food for dinner and this was part of the feast I prepared. I did some research on Grecian cuisine and I found that Grecian vegetable dishes that are cooked with olive oil and tomatoes are referred to as lathera. The most popular vegetable to make "lathera style" is the green bean. So here you have it.

2 lb. green beans, cleaned and trimmed
1/2 c olive oil
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced

3 potatoes, wedged
3 carrots, chopped
1/2 c chopped fresh parsley
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 c crushed tomatoes
1 1/2 c warm water
1 tsp raw sugar
1 tbsp chopped fresh dill
Salt and pepper, to taste

  1. In a large pot, heat up that olive oil and saute up the onions and garlic.
  2. When the onions are softened, add the green beans, potatoes, and carrots to the pot. 
  3. Mix the tomato paste and warm water and add that to your veggies. Also throw in the crushed tomatoes, parsley, and sugar.
  4. Cover the pot and simmer on low for about 40 minutes or so.  
  5. When the 40ish minutes are up, add-in the chopped fresh dill and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook for another 10 minutes or so.
