Yellow Wax Bean Stew

Mahune – that is the name of the vegetables in this recipe, in Croatian. I couldn’t find correct name for it in English, I think it’s ‘fine green beans’ or ‘yellow wax beans’. Although the beans I have in my garden are yellow, I think it’s the same thing as green beans. I add pictures, so you can figure out yourself :)

I hope you gonna enjoy in this recipe, it’s healthy and delicious.
