Another favourite from my parents household. The flavour of the whole onion, simmered and not fry gives a special taste to this dish. Don’t forget share the onion when dishing up.
1/2 kg green beans
1 whole onion
1 green pepper
2 tomatoes chopped (or 1/2 can chopped tomatoes)
3 Tbsp oil
salt and white pepper
Cut both ends of green beans. and discard the ends
Cut beans in two.
Place all ingredients (the onion is placed whole) in a pot of water and turn heat at max and cook till beans are soft (about 1 hour) Check that the liquid has not evaporated.
There should be just enough liquid left to moisten the beans.
As a side plate for a main dish of Roast meat.
Make a stew by browning 500 gr of Veal Shin or Chicken Breast (cut in small pieces) and add the rest of the recipe. Serve with rice
