Homestyle Green Beans and Potatoes
1 large onion, chopped or thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
2 lbs. small new red potatoes, halved
4 cups low sodium vegetable broth
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 tsp. sweet smoked paprika
Mrs. Dash Table Blend to taste
In a large Dutch oven or saucepan, cook the onion until it
begins to brown, adding a splash of water when necessary to keep
it from sticking. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
Add the green beans and the potatoes and then add enough broth
to barely cover the potatoes. Add black pepper to taste, bring
to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cover. Cook until potatoes
are tender, about 15-20 minutes.
Add the smoked paprika and cook for another minute. Season with Mrs.
Dash if desired.
Yield: 4-6 servings.
NOTE: Any small new potatoes will do -- a combination of small
purple potatoes and tiny gold ones -- or chop large potatoes
into 3/4-inch cubes. Waxy new potatoes taste best in this and
hold together better.
