This simple, flavorful stew is traditionally eaten with chunks of feta cheese and some crusty bread. I like to crumble a small amount of feta over the top of each serving. To make the dish easy and foolproof, I call for frozen green beans. Temperamental fresh green beans can make or break a dish, and require some time for trimming; however, if you have a good, tender batch, by all means use them. A fresh, crusty bread is a must with this. To round out the meal, serve a big green salad with some chickpeas tossed in, and a good wine.

Recipe Ingredients for Geek Stewed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Zucchini

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 large potato, peeled
1 medium zucchini, sliced
1/2 pound frozen green beans, thawed
14 ounce can diced tomatoes, with liquid
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1/4 cup water

Recipe Directions for Geek Stewed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Zucchini

  1. Heat the oil in a large soup pot or steep-sided stir-fry pan. Add the onion and sauté until it is golden.

  2. Add the potatoes and 1/4 cup of water. Bring to a simmer, then cook, covered, over medium heat until the potato chunks are about half-done.

  3. Add the zucchini, green beans, tomatoes, and oregano. Simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are just tender.

  4. Stir in the parsley, then season to taste with salt and pepper.

  5. Ladle the stew into shallow bowls. Cut feta cheese into chunks and let everyone crumble some over the top.
