Green Beans with Onion, Garlic, & Tomato
| dish: side|
season: summer, fall
Clean and trim ends from beans. Rinse and cut tomatoes in half.
In a large, deep pan, heat oil over medium heat and add garlic and onion, cooking until onion is translucent. Put beans, tomatoes, a bit of the salt, pepper, and cover. Add up to 1/2 cup water to simmer if necessary (only add a bit at a time, so it will reduce). Simmer gently 15-20 minutes or until beans are nearly cooked to your liking. Remove lid, increase heat and reduce most of liquid, stirring occasionally. Add salt to taste.
