Baka’s Recipe for Green Beans and Tomatoes

My mother-in-law makes the best green beans for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner.  I would have never thought of this combination, but it is absolutely delicious.  As you can see from the photo, the colors in this dish add a festive touch.  Here’s her recipe.

Ingredients:Green beans and tomatoes

1 lb. fresh greenbeans

4 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup onions, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped 

2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped

5 firm ripe tomatoes

2 tablespoons bread crumbs

Salt and pepper

Directions:

Saute the onion in hot oil until it becomes clear, but does not brown.  Add the garlic, parsley, and green beans.  Stir well.  Cover and allow to simmer over moderate heat until the green beans are halfway done.  Slice the tomatoes.  Add the sliced tomatoes and bread crumbs to the green beans.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cover and allow to simmer over moderate heat until the green beans are tender.  Add water as required.  Serves about 8 people.

I would not recommend using canned green beans for this recipe.  If necessary, you can substitute canned tomatoes for fresh tomatoes. 

In my book, this dish beats green bean casserole hands down.  It not only tastes better, but it also presents better.  Try it out and let me know what you think.
