fresh green beans - rinsed, trimmed and snapped into bite size pieces
1 (8 ounce) can
petite diced tomatoes
fresh-ground black pepper
fresh lemon juice
These were absolutely delicious! I have been looking for a great green bean recipe for a while now and this is perfect! The only change I made, which I hate to do, was change out chicken stock with soy sauce for the tomatoes and water. My husband hate tomatoes ;-(..... but it was absolutely perfect!
I'm rating this a four considering I used canned green beans. What I mean by that is, with canned, a three, with fresh/frozen & fresh tomato, a four or five. Since using canned, I didn't add water & kinda (well, did) put the entire 15oz can tomatoes in (by mistake this time!) I freeze chipotle peppers by the T so used one of those (equivalent to the pepper & sauce) with the other ingredients except the green beans & lemon juice. Brought to boiling then added the beans to heat & lemon juice. 'Not too chipotle-y, which can be easy to do. I tried before & after the lemon juice & liked it better before. 'Doesn't taste lemony, but gives a slight vinegar flavor. Anyone having a garden with green beans & tomatoes should save this recipe. :)
Fantastic side dish for any occasion. I used this for Easter and it was perfect with the spiral ham. The only thing I added was a sprinkle 1/2 - 3/4 cup Pepitas. (hulled pumpkin seeds, I toasted them in a skillet) when toasted, they compliment bacon really well. Everyone loved this dish!
it was great. My wife has made some suggestions i may try. only difference was i used 1.5 lb from the garden, didn't have to cook as long i guess the string beans were still fairly young. Thank you for a great recipe!
