Armenian Green Beans

15 02 2010

So far, my youngest, Gaelen used to be quite picky and I could only convince him to eat broccoli, green beans and salad as his greens. This is one of his favorite green bean recipes.

2 tbsp vegetable oil

2 cups chopped onions

3 cups green beans, whole or cut in half

4 medium fresh tomatoes, chopped or 1 ½ cups undrained canned tomatoes, crushed

3 tbsp lemon juice

1/8 tsp dried thyme

¼ tsp dried marjoram

¼ tsp dried basil

salt and black pepper to taste

Saute the onions in the oil until translucent. Add the beans and cook about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until they turn a bright, shiny green. Stir in the tomatoes, lemon juice, herbs, and spices. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, 10 to 15 minutes, until the beans are tender and the flavors have married. Stir occasionally.
