Braised green beans


1kg green beans, top and tailed

1/2 a cup olive oil

1 red onions, diced

1 clove of garlic, sliced

4 large ripe tomatoes, grated

2 tbsps chopped dill

Lemon juice to taste

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Heat half the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the diced onions with a pinch of salt and sauté until translucent and tender. Stir in the garlic, and sauté for about 30 seconds, until you can smell the garlic.

Add the green beans, and fry them slightly, until you notice a slight change in colour, then stir in your tomatoes.

Bring to the boil, then turn down to the softest simmer and cover with a lid or a cartouche.

The beans will take about 20-30 mins to become tender. During cooking, check if the pan appears to be getting dry and add a little bit water if needed.

Once tender, turn off the heat then stir through dill and lemon juice and check for seasoning.

Serve warm or at room temperature, especially delicious with some feta on the side!
