Green Bean Dill Side Dish
  • 400 grams / 14 ounces green beans
  • 1 large onion
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 grams / 1 ounce fresh dill
  • 1½ tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 5 tablespoons sour cream
  • lemon juice to taste
  • knife
  • cutting board
  • larger bowl
  • small mixing bowl
  • thick-bottomed skillet
  • wooden spoon
  1. Heat the skillet, add oil and finely chopped onions. Fry the onions on a low temperature until soft and golden for approximately 15 minutes, adding few times about tablespoon of water in onion in during the second part of frying.
  2. Increase the temperature to medium, add green beans and just enough water to cover the beans and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the beans become tender. During this time, you will need to check beans texture from time to time, since the older beans needs to be cooked even longer to become soft, while younger or baby beans will definitely become soft quite quickly.
  3. Somewhere before end of cooking, stir in finely chopped dill, cover with the lid and let it simmer.
  4. Now, take mixing bowl, put flour, salt, sugar, pinch of black pepper and sour cream, add just a few tablespoons of water, mix well and add to the skillet. Stir it with the beans, cover with a lid and cook additional 3 – 4 minutes.
  5. Mix the lemon juice in right before serving, or leave it aside for everyone to add lemon juice to taste.
