Since living here in Florida, I have been moved to prepare a lot more Southern-Style dishes, like my Smothered Tofu, Biscuit, And Gravy, Southern Collard Greens, and my Southern Black Eyed Peas.
Vegan Southern Green Beans and Potatoes

This Vegan Southern Green Beans and Potatoes is my new favorite dish. Traditionally green beans are cooked with bacon and potatoes but with my classic dish and served as a side dish.

With my version,  you won’t even miss the bacon. It was so delicious!

I ate it alone for supper and didn’t even eat the other dishes I prepared, next time I’m planning to add some coconut bacon.

Traditionally the green beans and potatoes are cooked for at least an hour but I cooked mine for less so that the greens are not mushy.

The beauty of this recipe is that it will work for both fresh or frozen green beans, I haven’t tried it with canned green beans but I’m sure it will be fine.

I used smoked paprika to give the bacon-like flavor but you could substitute with vegan sausage or liquid smoke.
