Green Beans & Potatoes

Leanne D.


I love fresh green beans,for the past 2 weeks,the store where I usually buy vegetable have them on sale for .69 p/lb and they have been so good,small and tender. I don't always add potatoes but they're good and well seasoned when I do.My husband like to mash the potatoes on his plate.
Simmer as many potatoes as you need to serve.

Stove Top


fresh green beans,washed broken into 1 inch pieces
red potatoes,cut in half
vegetable broth or bouillon cube
garlic cloves,slivered
salt and pepper,to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

Add all ingredients(except salt) in a pot,cover with just enough water to barely cover, simmer until potatoes are done. Check for seasoning. You may not need salt using bouillon.
I cook canned green beans this way but cook the potatoes until tender,then add drained beans.Heat just until hot.I get a lot of compliments that they do not taste like canned beans.
