GREEN BEANS COOKED IN OLIVE OIL


This is a very simple dish and for that reason I thought twice before posting it.  I usually make  this  in summer and put it in the fridge and take it out just before we are ready to barbeque. By the time we're ready to eat it 's at the right temparature. It's very refreshing when chilled. I usually squeeze  lemon juice to make it more summery. This dish can be eaten as entree, side dish or even as a salad. I used the frozen beans yesterday because I was pressed for time.  If you have time and can find thin beans or haricot verdes or even cut the regular beans thin,  that'll work and it will be tastier.

1 Lbs bag of frozen French cut beans thowed (or fresh haricot verde)
1 Large onion
1/4 Cup Olive oil
1 Cup diced  (or any other style) canned tomatoes
1 Cup or more water
a pinch of sugar 
salt to taste
Sautee onion in a large pot until they're translucent. Add tomatoes, beans and water (If not on a special diet a pinch of sugar can be added at this stage), stir and cover. Cook in medium heat until beans are soft. Place on a dish, chill and enjoy. How simple is this???

Beans are so nice and versatile, aren't they! My parents grow them on their allotment, and last year we had plenty with almost every meal :-)

La farina Manitoba è una farina che si usa per preparazioni che lievitano prima della cottura. E' arricchita da proteine che aiutano la lievitazione. Da noi si chiama anche "farina americana", ma non saprei dirti il perchè!
Un bacione! :)
