How To Cook Fresh Green Beans In Tomato Sauce

These tiny little beans are packed full of nutritional value and are extremely versatile. Whether you are including them in a casserole, stir fry, or letting their sweet flavor shine as the star of a side dish, you will love what these little pods have to offer. When prepping the green beans, remove the ends of every bean. You can simply snap off the ends to ensure that you just get the crisp part of the bean, or use a knife to speed up the process. In a skillet, sweat some minced garlic, onion and chili flakes in olive oil. As they begin to cook, add in your fresh green beans with some tomato paste and freshly diced tomatoes. Add some stock or water and allow the beans to braise until fully cooked. In this video, Chef Mark will show you how to cook fresh green beans in a tangy tomato sauce. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
