Recipe of the Week: Rob’s Green Beans with Tomatoes

Reader “Rucksack Rob”  kindly sent us his recipe for Long-Cooked Green Beans with Tomatoes and Garlic. This is a very simple recipe that’s good especially in late summer after your garden harvest but also any time of year.

  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin Olive Oil
  • ¼  cup minced Yellow Onion (or a little more, if you’d like)
  • 3 cloves Garlic, thinly sliced (or less, to taste.)
  • 1-1/2 lbs of Green Beans, ends trimmed
  • 3 lg. ripe Tomatoes, chopped (and seeded if you’d like )
  • Salt, to taste
  • black pepper – freshly coarse ground, to taste
  • Parmesan Cheese
  1. In a skillet over a medium heat, warm the oil
  2. Add Onions and cook until soft, stirring occasionally… 7-10 minutes
  3. Add Garlic and continue stirring…1 minute
  4. Add Green Beans and tomatoes over low heat until soft, about 20-25 minutes
  5. Season with Salt and generous amount of Black Pepper
  6. Simmer until liquid is gone… 3-5 minutes
  7. Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese, fresh shredded (can be omitted)
Alternate Ideas:

I like my green beans a little crispier so I only cook mine for about 12 minutes – test bite to your taste…

If you wish, spice it up a little more with a shake or two of Red Pepper Flakes during the cooking… not too much, though!


Serve hot.
