Lovely recipe. I did prepare it a little differently - I made the sauce separate, steamed the beans and the poured the sauce over the beans when I served them Wonderful do again for sure recipe

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and snip the ends of green beans.
  2. In a pan, saute the onions and garlic until soft.
  3. Add the chopped tomato and a bit of water cook for 15 minutes, until mixture has become soft and well mixed together.
  4. Add the green beans, salt & pepper and seasoning salt. If water evaporated, add a little more to help beans cook.
  5. Cover and cook until beans are crisp yet tender, approximately 20 minutes.
  6. There should be some liquid, not much, spoon beans onto a platter, spooning tomato pieces on top of beans.
  7. You could garnish with toasted slivered almonds if you like.
  8. Serve next to your favorite entree.
