Supreme Green Beans and Tomatoes

Ready in 25 minutes

This is a very good recipe for fresh or frozen green beans and great for entertaining or holidays. Leave out the bacon and cook vegetables in a little olive oil for a vegetarian dish.

I'll be the first to admit that I like my green beans heinously overcooked. I don't think there's anything bad about having a food preference, even one that - as all my friends are very quick to inform me - is wrong in every way that a preference can possibly be wrong. Still, I've always wished that I could understand what other people see in lightly cooked, crunchy green beans. This recipe definitely showcases lightly cooked beans; even I can appreciate them. Their snappy crunch blends well with the texture of the onions and bacon, and the bacon grease and juice of the tomatoes dresses everything deliciously. I added black pepper, but no salt. If making again, I might add fresh basil or thyme for variety.

Family couldn't get enough of it. My wife practically licked the bowl and she doesn't even like green beans.

I used fresh beans, home grown tomatoes and added some home grown, chopped and toasted macadamia nuts. Quick, easy and tasty.
