My heirloom tomatoes plants are providing us an impressive crop. This recipe was designed around using some of the tomatoes. —Maureen McD

What You'll Need
  • 24 ounces fresh green beans, cleaned
  • 3 to 4 small to medium fresh tomatoes, chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper
  1. Cook green beans until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. Preheat pan on medium heat and then add oil.
  3. Add chopped garlic to pan and cook but be careful not to burn garlic. Time will probably be about a minute depending on the heat.
  4. Add balsamic vinegar and allow to cook down to half quantity.
  5. Add tomatoes, salt and pepper to pan. Bring to a simmer to warm up tomatoes and release their juices
  6. Add green beans to pan, mix well. Adjust seasonings and serve.
