Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat if garlic begins to brown. Add green beans, then continue to cook and stir until bright green but not quite tender, about 4 minutes.
  2. Mix in tomatoes, lemon juice and pine nuts, and season with chives, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat and simmer gently uncovered for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf before serving.

I used Kentucky Wonder beans and fresh tomatoes from the garden, 3 cups of chopped cherry tomatoes! This was delicious. It does take a long time to cook, compared with other vegetables (needs all the time the recipe says). I also added 1 teaspoon of salt because I thought it was really bland without it.

This was ok, nothing special but nothing bad either. Probably would not make again.

Yum. I like to consider myself something of a green bean expert because they are my favorite, and this recipe is excellent. I used frozen beans because I didn't have fresh. You can vary the cooking time depending on how well done you like your beans. Perfectly tomatoey! Thanks!

This seemed like it would be good cause all the ingredients are good, but it just wasn't a hit with our family. Didnt' taste too good.

My husband and I liked it very much! The combination of garlic, tomatoes (I used fresh ones) and beans was so delicious. Definitly a keeper!

This was full of tomato flavor, and I normally wouldn't mind that, except I wanted to taste green beans. If I make this again, I will add more green beans, I think, and a bit more garlic, since I could hardly taste it.

I tried this for the ease of it. It was ok, but I do a much better version and wont take the short cuts again.

This was great. I used a can of chopped tomatoes with chilies - which added a nice heat to the dish. I also replaced the pine nuts with black beans. A new favorite.
