Green Beans with Potatoes

About this recipe

Green beans were voted “best vegetable” at last year’s family picnic, and it’s all because of this recipe.


Boil diced potatoes in salted water until half-cooked (about 10 minutes). Then add green string-beans (washed, with both ends snapped off). Boil another 10-15 minutes.

When vegetables are ready, drain, mash potatoes a little with a fork, and toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
