So here's are two weird facts about me I despise tomatoes, and then here's the other I love eating cherry tomatoes. But, absolutely will not eat the ones that you put on sandwiches and burgers. Okay so, yeah maybe I like tomatoes to a certain point. Although, I do not know why, though, perhaps it's because cherry tomatoes are sweeter than the regular ones. However, green beans and I are best buddies lol. I know it's very early, but maybe I will teach you how to make green bean casserole for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
Anyways lol. Since my appreciation for a variety of veggies is slowly improving, I thought I would give this Green Bean with cherry tomatoes a try. It was excellent, and it's easy to assemble. If you don't have the fresh vegetables on hand, you can quickly change with canned goods.
Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes
Water (Just enough to barely cover the beans)
1 1⁄2 lbs green beans fresh or frozen
1 Tbsp. butter
3⁄4 tsp. garlic salt
1 Tbsp. sugar
1⁄2 tsp. basil
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1⁄2 pt. cherry tomatoes
1. Toss green beans in a medium saucepan and fill it with water. Cook over medium heat for about five-ten minutes or until they are tender. Remove from heat and drain. Set aside. Cut cherry tomatoes in half. Set aside
2. In a large frying pan, melt butter and add garlic salt, sugar, basil, salt, and pepper. Next, add cherry tomatoes and cook, stirring until barely soft and heated, but not squishy. Then add the drained beans and mix well.
