Fasolakia ladera (oily green beans) again

faslakia ladera
Today I propose another fasolakia ladera (oily green beans) recipe, a summer food, light and delicious. The days are very hot, and this is the solution if you are looking for something that is eaten pleasantly cooler. Typically the vegetables are suitable for such cases. Thus arose the current and proposed suspension and fasting periods. Fasolakia ladera is a homemade food who is causeing nostalgic memories from their mommy. And there because in my view the only problem of this otherwise wonderful Greek dish.

500g. fresh green beans
2 onions, chopped
1 tablespoon garlic powder
3 ripe tomatoes, grated on a coarse grater
2 carrots
2 zucchini
salt - pepper
1 pinch of sugar

Wash the beans and purified from the fibers may have the side. Then heat a pan and add the oil to soften the onion. Cut carrots and zucchini into chunks and add to pot, let it sit for about 2 minutes. Then put the green beans and our equal lubricated. Pour the tomatoes and cover with water. Add garlic, salt, pepper and sugar and bring to a boil. Then, lower the heat and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour or so, until liquid has evaporated and lots of sauce left.

The secret recipe is not that much to stir us not melt and vegetables do not add too much salt, since we want the sweetness to earn our beans. Not corrected during the cooking salt, pepper, sugar, because in the end we show the actual taste of the food and then add whatever we want

Leave the food for at least 15 minutes before serving, to come to room temperature and to tie the flavors. Add in fresh willingness extra virgin olive oil and fresh pepper and serve with good bread and cheese. Ideally accompanied by a Grimbergen Blonde that the fruity character, fits perfectly with the crunchy and your fragrant beans.

Enjoy your fasolakia!
