  • 1½ tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1½ cups Desiree potatoes, diced with skins on (or other red potato variety)
  • ½ cup celery, finely chopped (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 550 g fresh green beans, trimmed
  • ¼ cup water
  • ⅓ cup fresh coriander or ¼ cup fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 350 g plum tomato, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground red pepper
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic to pan and saute for 30 seconds, stirring constantly.
  2. Add potato, celery, salt, and beans and saute for a further 1 minute.
  3. Add ¼ cup water; cover and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Add coriander or parsley, and tomatoes.
  5. Cover, reduce heat, and cook a further 4 minutes or until the tomatoes begin to soften, stirring occasionally.
  6. Stir in red and black peppers.
To peel tomatoes, score the skin by making a small X on the bottom side with a sharp knife. Place tomato in boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove tomato using a slotted spoon; immediately submerge in a bowl of ice water. Let stand for one minute. Skin should pull off easily with a sharp knife.
