Omigosh this is so amazing.. I joined a CSA and we are getting a lot of green beans, this is so amazing I have already made it twice since last week.. Thank you Tongue out


Fantastic! Just finished cooking this recipe for dinner and I put it over whole wheat pasta.... I am eating it now and enjoying -  yum!


How have I never rated this?  This is probably my #1 most used recipe on vegweb.  This is so yummy and easy to make.  My husband's only complaint is that the sundried tomatoes make it oily (I use the ones packed in olive oil).  But...I love it.  I usually add some soy sauce to the mix after it's almost done cooking to give it an asian flavor, and I eat it over brown rice.  Last time, I added mushrooms when I put in the s.d. tomatoes and that was also tasty.


I made this the other night and was very impressed! The tomatoes added a nice, subtle "tang" to the green beans; fantastic! I sprinkled a little sliced almonds on top as well.


toasted pine nuts were a nice addition to this.  I kept my green beans whole, but next time I will cut them in halves or thirds so that their size goes better with the tomatoes.  next time I'll probably use frozen cut green beans, in fact.  this was a festive side dish at Christmas with the red and the green... and the omnivores enjoyed it, too.


I made this today with dinner and everyone thought it was delicious. I used "dried" sun-dried tomatoes, briefly soaking them in hot water, and chopped up raw garlic, instead of roasting the garlic first.
Be sure not to cook the green beans too long. Soggy green beans wouldn't taste good in this recipe.
