Spicy Green Beans!! Simple and Yummy Recipe!

Posted on

I have planted my beans and peas in my garden since the soil has warmed up enough.  Hopefully the weather continues to stay warm and I will be eating fresh beans and peas before I know it.  My wonderful daughter Madeline and I are the only ones in our family who love green beans, so this recipe posting is in honour of her.  When my garden is full to the bursting with fresh green beans, this is a great way to eat them up.  Great hot or cold!

Spicy Green Beans

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 pound tender fresh green beans

1 large tomato chopped

3 cloves of garlic finely chopped

1/2 tsp Sirachi sauce

1 tsp balsamic vinegar

red pepper flakes to taste (You can make this as hot as you like)

salt and pepper to taste

In a fry pan heat oil over medium high heat.  Add all ingredients except for green beans.  Simmer til tomatoes soften and a bit of juice forms.  Add green beans and cook til tender crisp.  Add a bit of water if the sauce gets too thick.  Enjoy hot as a side dish or room temperature as a delicious salad.  Hope you enjoy.  Cheers, Michele
