MrsDrPoe: Green Beans with Tomato and Onion
It's that time again folks- What's for Dinner Wednesday. On tonight's menu is a side dish that uses up some of the last of the summer's bounty*: green beans with tomato and onion.
Ingredients: 1 medium tomato, 2 handfuls of green beans, 1/8th of a medium onion, 1-2 tablespoons olive oil (not pictured), salt and pepper (not pictured):
Pour oil in a skillet over med-high heat. Cut the ends off the green beans, and thinly slice the tomato and onion. Place the beans on onion in the oil and season. Cook for 5-10 minutes stirring occasionally until they have almost reached your preferred softness; add in the tomato, and cook an additional 1-2 minutes to heat the tomato:
Serve alongside your favorite main dish.
*You could also substitute canned beans for a healthier alternative to green bean casserole during the holidays.
What are you having for supper tonight?
