Greek Style Green Beans-Fasolakia Lathera
Original Recipe: Greek Style Green Beans
Last night for dinner I did a couple of things…one was a whole chicken in the Instant Pot, using also the Air Fryer lid. Needs work, I’ll report back on that later.
But as a side dish, I made one of the new Greek recipes I found from Olive Tomato.
This was really yummy, however, I don’t like my green beans to be cooked to the point of mush and being discolored.
I like them to look like this
But when they were “done” according to the recipe, they were brown-ish and mushy.
So while I would make this again for sure, I would add the beans at the last 5 minutes, when the potatoes are done, not let them cook for 40 minutes.
Here’s the finished dish, looks better with the creamy feta on top!
Here’s a close up.
The beans, potatoes, tomatoes and onions were all from Imperfect Foods.

Just a weird aside…when I cut open the first tomato for this dish I was horrified by what I saw and felt inside.
I’ve been assured it was fine, just the seeds had sprouted. Which of course is what I thought, but I really didn’t think they started sprouting inside the fresh tomato! I thought they’d start once the fruit was rotting or smashed, etc.
So while it looks a little like a horror movie, it’s also pretty cool.
