Braised Potatoes and Green Beans with Olive Oil and Toasted Garlic

Hearty with chunks of potatoes and tender green beans, this is a comforting, stew-like dish. Sliced garlic cloves become deliciously crisp garlic chips that are sprinkled on as a garnish, and the heady garlic-infused oil that remains is stirred into the vegetables at the very end along with a couple tablespoons of woodsy sherry vinegar, suffusing the vegetables with rich flavor. This is hearty enough to be a vegetarian main but light enough to be a side to roasted or seared meat, chicken or fish.

Don’t use waxy potatoes, such as red or white varieties, as they lack the starch to lightly thicken the cooking liquid. Also, don’t worry if the potatoes begin to break apart as they simmer; you’ll be mashing some of the pieces anyway.
