I liked green beans as a child, but for most of my adult life, I could take 'em or leave 'em. Lately, I've been trying a lot new recipes and I'm finding green beans are a favorite again.
This recipe has a fresh taste with just a hint of Italian flavor. I picked it up from an issue of Taste of Home, but saw the very same recipe in a cookbook from Costco. Instead of regular fresh or frozen green beans, I used the thinner haricot verts.
Herbed Green Beans and Tomatoes
3 green onions, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 pound fresh or frozen green beans
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/4 teaspoon dried basil leaves
2-3 medium Roma tomatoes, diced
salt and pepper to taste
Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until tender. Add green beans, cover, and cook over medium-low heat until just tender, 6-8 minutes.
Stir in oregano, basil, tomato, salt and pepper. Heat through and serve.
Makes 6-8 servings.
