Green Beans and Potatoes

I come from a multicultural family with roots in South American, Asia, Europe, and North America. Often times, we mix and combine foods from different cultures. Nowadays, that’s called “fusion”. We just called dinner.By now, two months into the quarantine????, some people might be running out of ideas on what to make for dinner. Here’s a simple dish that’s delicious, nutritious, cheap, and fast.
