    from "The Olive and the Caper" by Susanna Hoffman

    If I could string together the number of green beans I have eaten in Greece, I'd have a cord long enough to pull me back whenever I wanted to return. Slim and tender string beans are found Pouthena, "everywhere" and Pandou "anywhere" and eaten avidly all the time in Greece.

    The beans are serves as hot vegetables all on their own. The choice is, as with all Greek food aesthetics, excellent. Long and thin as they are, green beans don't easily match in texture with other vegetables, but here, Greek-style, extra verve comes from shallots, tomato and a splash of white wine.

    Serves 6

    2 tablespoons olive oil
    3 large shallots, finely chopped
    1 clove garlic, coarsely chopped
    1/8 teaspoon fennel seeds
    4 medium tomatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch pieces, juices reserved
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves
    1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed and left whole
    1/3 cup dry white wine
    2 cups water
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    1. Heat the oil in a large non-reactive pot over medium heat. Add the shallots, garlic and fennel seeds and sauté until lightly softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes with the juices and continue cooking until the tomatoes are soft and stewed down, 5 minutes.
    2. Stir in the parsley, mint, green beans, white wine, water and salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat, partially cover the pot and simmer until the beans are very tender and the liquid is reduced by half and sauce like, 45 minutes. Serve right away.

    Make it with pre-cut beans
