This easy recipe for Authentic Greek Green Beans, aka Fasolakia Lathera, is a popular Greek dish traditionally served with feta, olives, and fresh bread. Green beans and potatoes are braised in a delicious olive oil tomato sauce until tender and flavorful. Most commonly cooked with parsley, these green beans are sometimes made – and equally delicious – with other fresh herbs, like oregano or basil.

The ingredients for this recipe couldn’t be any easier: olive oil, fresh green beans, onion, potatoes, tomatoes, parsley, and salt and black pepper. The recipe calls for a generous amount of extra-virgin olive oil, but don’t be tempted to reduce it. All that olive oil is what actually makes this dish so flavorful and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. If you don’t have in-season tomatoes, swap them out for canned tomatoes. This flavorful dish is great warm or at room temperature. And it will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days. Serve with briny feta and crusty bread. Enjoy!
