"I was taught to cook in the South, where we’d eyeball how much of this or that went into a dish and creativity was encouraged (I added the garlic—which Daddy wouldn’t touch). Here are the basics of this healthy, low-fat favorite." --Susan Rohrer
  • Fresh Green Beans (about a handful per person to serve)
  • Chopped yellow onion (sized proportionately to amount of green beans)
  • 1-2 T. Olive oil
  • Diced tomatoes (enough for color, but not so much to upstage the green beans)
  • Vegetable bouillon and/or water (enough to simmer the beans)
  • Minced garlic cloves
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Toasted slivered almonds
Wash and cut the stems off the green beans. Snap or cut to size. Chop onion and sauté in olive oil in large pot on stovetop till tender and golden. Add prepped green beans and vegetable bouillon to the same pot. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to simmer. Add diced tomatoes, garlic, salt & pepper. Simmer till beans are tender. Toast almonds on a tray in oven. Set aside in separate dish. Serve using slotted spoon. Garnish with toasted almonds to taste.
