I figured sauteed green beans was a boring title. I like to play with words. It's fun. Keep me occupied for 10 seconds. Anyway...a simple, yet delicious meal satisfying on every level, at least for me.
Sauteed green beans with a slight Asian flavor. I had eaten quite a big meal the other day with that pasta, so I wanted to go for something relatively light and on the healthy side. But I didn't want a salad. That was last thing on my mind. I remember I had gotten some green beans from the farmer's market. So I made a quick saute with them and mixed it with some fresh tomatoes a some grated cheese. A semi-saute salad in a way. I had this with a small cheese sammie on homemade wheat french bread.
Sauteed Green Beans
1 lbs Green bean
2 small tomatoes (chopped and deseeded)
Grated Cheese of your choice
3 Tbsp Soy sauce
2 garlic cloves (minced)
salt & pepper to season
In a small bowl season the tomato with a pinch of salt and mix.
In a pan, coat the bottom with oil and heat. Saute the garlic until brown. Add in the green beans and stir to combine for a couple of minutes. Season with a little salt and pepper. Add in the soy sauce. Toss a few more times. Until beans are tender.
Remove the beans from the heat and toss in with the tomatoes. Serve with helping cheese on top.
