- 1 1/2 lb green beans
- 2 medium onions, peeled and sliced
- 2 or more cloves garlic, peeled and minced

Clean and trim ends from beans. Boil water and dip tomatoes into it for 15-30 seconds, or until the skin starts to split. Remove from
water, run briefly under cold water, and peel when cool enough to handle. Chop tomatoes coarsely.
In a large, deep pan, heat oil over medium heat and add garlic and onion, cooking until onion is translucent. Put beans, tomatoes, a bit of the salt, pepper, and cover. Add up to 1/2 cup water to simmer if necessary. Simmer gently 15-20 minutes or until beans are nearly cooked to your liking. Remove lid, increase heat and reduce most of liquid, stirring occasionally. Add salt to taste.
