Are you looking for something different to do to green beans? This recipe is it!


  1. Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until soft.
  2. Add tomato paste and fresh tomato and simmer until sauce is slightly thickened.
  3. Add string beans and seasoning and enough water to barely cover.
  4. Cover and cook until beans are tender.

Awesome side dish! I made it with Garides (Shrimp) a La Turkolimano, which it worked well with, but next time I make this I'm going to use it as a side for grilled meat--it will be wonderful served that way! I loved this, and the flavors, Thanks, Susie! Made for ZWT4

Green beans are my favorite and these were divine! Just great flavor and simple to make. Made for ZWT4 and the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
