  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Low Fat, Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 lb Green Beans; (fresh)
  • 2 md Onions; sliced thinly
  • 4 Cloves Garlic; minced
  • 1 lb Italian Plum Tomatoes;
  • -(red-ripe)
  • 2 ts Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/2 c Water
  • 1/2 tb Fresh Oregano; (optional)
  • --or-
  • 1/4 ts Dried Oregano
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper


Cut the stems (but not the tails) off the beans, and cut them into 1 inch
pieces. If you want to peel the tomatoes (I don't), drop them into boiling
water for 15 seconds, remove to a bowl of ice water, then peel. Chop the
tomatoes into 1/2 inch pieces. (You can use one large can of diced plum
tomatoes, in a pinch, or if you're feeling lazy.)

Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, and stir-fry the garlic for 30 seconds, or
so. Fling in the onions, and stir-fry over medium heat for 2-3 minutes,
being sure not to burn the garlic or color the onions. Dump in the
tomatoes, beans, salt, pepper, oregano (if desired) and water, and bring to
a boil. Cover, lower heat, and simmer for 10-15 minutes (depending on how
done you like the beans), then uncover, boost the heat, and reduce the
liquid until it's thick. Correct seasonings.
