Green Beans with Potatoes

Green Beans with Potatoes

A friend mentioned to me recently that she was trying to eat more vegetables, but having a hard time. She just isn’t crazy about most veggies. I don’t think she is alone. A lot of people know they should eat more vegetables, or have kids that won’t eat veggies, but they just don’t like them.

A simple way to eat more veggies is to combine them with foods you do like. Adding some veggies to a pasta dish works pretty well.  Vegetables added to soup works well, too.

Most people I know love potatoes. If you add veggies to a potato dish, maybe, at least, they will try it.

For this dish I just sauteed up some onions, added potatoes and then the beans. Served it to a friend at dinner. It was eaten right up. Since my friend doesn’t eat bacon I didn’t add it, but it would make a nice addition.

It is a nice dish, even if you love green beans already, like I do.

4 potatoes, sliced, peeled, if you like

1-2 c. chicken stock- you could use veggie stock

Heat oil in large skillet and cook onion until tender. Add the potatoes and cook until potatoes start to turn a little golden. Add one cup of stock and cover skillet, cooking over medium heat until potatoes are tender. Add beans and cover skillet, cooking until beans are tender- you might need more stock.
