canned tomatoes

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup shredded fresh mint leaves

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 small onion, finely chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 pound green beans, trimmed

3 to 5 plum tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped (1 1/2 cups), or 1 1/2 cups chopped drained


  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes longer. Stir in the beans and tomatoes. Add just enough cold water to come slightly below the level of the beans. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, season with salt and pepper, and cover. Cook, covered, stirring from time to time, until very tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Use tongs to transfer the beans to a plate or platter. Place the skillet on top of the stove. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cook, stirring often, until the cooking liquid is reduced to about 1 cup. Return the beans to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the mint and serve.
