Smothered Potatoes and Green Beans

This is a good dish for those cold winter nights.  I ate 3 helpings for my supper last night.  Green beans are safe according to the Monash University Low Fodmap Diet app.

3 slices thick cut bacon, chopped
1 lb. boiling potatoes cut into 3/4 inch cubes
1 lb. green beans, trimmed and halved
1 tablespoon white spelt flour
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup chopped scallion greens
salt and pepper

Fry the bacon in a saute pan until it is crisp. Remove it from the pan and reserve.  Add the spelt flour to the fat in the pan over low heat and stir until incorporated and without lumps.  Add the water and stir to incorporate.  Add the potatoes and green beans and bring the mixture to a boil.  Turn the heat down to a simmer, put a lid on the pan and let it cook for 20 minutes, stirring once or twice.  When the vegetables are cooked, add the reserved bacon and the scallions. Taste and adjust the seasoning. I like it with lots of freshly ground black pepper.
