  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 pounds fresh roma tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped* (about 3 cups)
  • 3 cups fresh green beans, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine, pomegranate juice or cranberry juice
  • 1 -2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in tomatoes, green beans, rosemary, wine, vinegar, salt and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer until green beans are desired tenderness, stirring occasionally.


  • *Tip: If nice fresh roma tomatoes are not available, substitute two 28-ounce cans whole peeled roma tomatoes, drained and chopped (should be about 3 cups). Reduce the salt to 1/4 teaspoon.


  • *Tip: To peel and seed tomatoes: Cut a shallow X on the base of each tomato. Using a slotted spoon, dip tomatoes into boiling water for 15 seconds, then transfer to cold water. When cooled slightly, use a paring knife to gently pull off the skin. To remove the seeds, cut the tomato in half and scoop or squeeze out the seeds.
