These green beans are full of flavor with just a hint of spice.
PREP TIME 13 mins
COOK TIME 35 mins
TOTAL TIME 48 mins
1½ lbs green beans, topped and tailed, left whole
2 – 3 large onions, halved and then sliced
3 or 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
¼ C good olive oil (extra virgin if you have it)
16 oz can of diced tomatoes in tomato juice
½ tsp salt
⅛ tsp pepper
½ tsp allspice
1. Saute the onion in olive oil on medium heat until softened and translucent.
2. Add green beans, saute until they get a bit of color and onion turns golden.
3. Add garlic, saute another minute, then add tomatoes, salt, black pepper and allspice.
4. Cover tightly and simmer until the string beans are cooked to your liking, but definitely on the soft side, at least 15 to 20 minutes (or longer if you like them really soft like I do)
