This is a delicious way of cooking green beans which my friend Zaza taught me.

I usually use flat beans for this recipe, but I’m sure it will also work with “haricots verts”.

– Clean and string the green beans if necessary (about 700 g)
– Clean 4 big ripe tomatoes. Peel them if you have the patience 🙂 and cut them in large boats
– Peel 10 to 12 garlic cloves. Keep them whole.
– Fry the garlic cloves in a little olive oil just to the point when they will start to brown (but don’t let them brown).
– Add the green beans and fry them for about 5 min.
– Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper, cover and simmer on low heat until the beans are done.

Very simple and very delicious.
