 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3       tb           Olive oil & margarine, mixed
    1       c            Tomato juice or sauce
    1       lb           Fresh green beans
                         -- trimmed, cut
    1       tb           Chopped fresh parsley, opt.
    2       md           Potatoes -- peeled
                         Salt & freshly ground pepper
                         Chopped fresh mint
   Heat the fat in an enameled pan and mix in the tomato
   juice or sauce. Add the green beans and parsley to the
   pan with enough water to almost cover. Tuck the potato
   slices in between, partially cover the pan, and simmer
   for 25 minutes, the stir and season with salt, pepper,
   and 2 tablespoons chopped mint.  Cook uncovered until
   the beans and potatoes are fork tender, about 10 more
   minutes.  If the sauce has not thickened, pour it into
   a small pan, and boil down to one cup, then combine
   with the beans and potatoes in a warm serving bowl.
   Sprinkle with a little additional fresh mint and serve
   warm. Excellent with grilled chops, fish or egg dish,
   but equally good as a main course with cheese.
