Green Beans and Tomatoes {Easiest side dish or meal ever}

I want to share something that I've been eating ever since I was a little girl. This ridiculously easy dish is one my grandmother would make for me all of the time when I was younger. In reality, it's her recipe that I've continued to make for myself and my family. This dish could be used as a side dish or as a meal, in which I often have. It only take a few minutes to make, and you can add whatever you want to it.

-Olive oil
-A large can of whole peeled tomatoes, peeled plum tomatoes, or diced tomatoes. Your choice
-3 cans of green beans, any style. I use french style. Fresh is always great too.
-Garlic powder. Fresh is alway good as well
-Salt to taste

 Heat olive oil in pot, add your tomatoes. I always cut them up in the can before. Bring them to a good bubble.

 Strain you green beans really well. Put in colander and press to get out as much moisture as you can.

 Once your tomatoes have been bubbling a bit (few minutes at most), add your garlic and your green beans.

 Cook off excess moisture until you get the consistency you want. I usually simmer for about 5-8 minutes once everything is added. 

Serve as a meal or with your meal.

  1. I actually make a similar recipe but with lots of onions. Yum!

    1. So funny you say that because I am tempted to throw some onions into this and see what happens! :)
