Still looking, but found a green bean recipe
      04/11/03 06:20 AM

I haven't found a book yet that I just had to bring home with me. Some of the vegetarian books looked good, I need to do some more research.

Anyway, I found this recipe for green beans that I think will fit into low carb and low fat, I'm planning on bringing it to Easter dinner instead of the green beans/creamed soup staple recipe.

Green Beans with Onion, Garlic & Tomato

Recipe By : Revised by Carol Williams
Serving Size : 10 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Vegetable Side Dishes

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 1/2 pounds green beans -- fresh
2 medium onions -- sliced thin
4 cloves garlic -- minced
1 pound Italian plum tomatoes -- red- ripe
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 teaspoon oregano
fresh ground pepper

-Cut the stems (but not the tails) off the beans, and cut them into 1inch pieces. If you want to peel the tomatoes drop them into boiling water for 15 seconds, remove to a bowl of ice water, then peel.
-Chop the tomatoes into 1/2 inch pieces. (You can use one large can of diced plum tomatoes, in a pinch, or if you're feeling lazy.)
-Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, and stir-fry the garlic for 30 seconds, or so.
-Add in the onions, and stir-fry over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, being sure not to burn the garlic or color the onions.
-Add in the tomatoes, beans, salt, pepper, oregano (if desired) and water, and bring to a boil.
-Cover, lower heat, and simmer for 10-15 minutes (depending on how done you like the beans), then uncover,
increase the heat, and then reduce the liquid until it's thick.
-Adjust seasonings.
