Green Beans and Potatoes

Simple summer dish with flat green beans and potatoes. This was one of my favorite dinner dishes as a child, unfortunately can’t say the same about my children’s favorites. There are only a few veggie dishes they’d eat. My mom would make this meal as soon as flat green beans and young potatoes were in season. As many of my summertime veggie dishes , this one too, is very light in calories, flavorful and super easy to make. I am planning on sharing more summertime light meal ideas, so stay tuned for those and for now try and see how you like this one.
