Categories     side-dish

Time 45m

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 1/2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 large shallots, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Parmesan Crisps, recipe follows
1/2 cup grated Parmesan


  • Cook the green beans in a large pot of boiling water until just crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water. Drain well; set aside.
  • Melt the butter and oil in a heavy, large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and garlic and saute until tender, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Add the beans and cook until the juices evaporate and the beans are almost tender, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Stir in the wine and basil. Simmer 2 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl, and serve.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Pour a heaping tablespoon of Parmesan onto a silicone or parchment lined baking sheet and lightly pat down. A silicone baking sheet is highly recommended. Repeat with the remaining cheese, spacing the spoonfuls about a 1/2-inch apart.
  • Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden and crisp. Cool.
  • Yield: 8 to 10 crisps

Green Bean and Tomato Salad image

This simple summer salad pairs beautifully with practically any grilled meat or fish, and it's quite easy to make. Just blanch the green beans until crisp tender, then toss with wedges of ripe tomato and a bright vinaigrette of Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, garlic, shallots and olive oil. A shower of chopped fresh basil across the top finishes it off.

French String Bean Salad image

Provided by Ina Garten

Categories     side-dish

Time 15m

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 7

Kosher salt
1 1/2 pounds French string beans, both ends trimmed
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup good olive oil
2 tablespoons minced fresh dill


  • Fill a large bowl with ice water. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 1 tablespoon of salt. Add the beans and cook for 1 minute only. Time it carefully! You want the beans to be crisp-tender. Drain the beans and put them in the ice water until completely cool. Drain the beans again, dry on paper towels, and place them in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the mustard, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the pepper. While whisking, slowly add the olive oil to make an emulsion. Pour enough dressing over the beans to moisten them well, reserving the rest for another use. Toss with the dill, season to taste, and serve at room temperature. (If the beans aren't served immediately, refrigerate them and add a little extra vinaigrette and a sprinkle of salt before serving.)

String/Green Beans in Chunky Tomato Sauce image

This is a recipe from Lidia's Italian American Kithchen. The traditional beans used in this recipe are the Italian string beans - the flat wide ones. Due to the acidity of the tomato sauce they will turn olive green in the cooking process. This recipe is posted by request. I haven't tried it yet.

Penzey's Tomato Basil Green Beans image

This recipe is from a Penzey's catalog from several years ago. It is also very good with dill instead of basil, and I plan to try with oregano next time. Be sure to use plum (roma) tomatoes which are meatier than other types. Also, the cooking times are for whole green beans; I buy a big bag of frozen whole tender young beans at a warehouse club or Trader Joes. I have reduced the amount of oil to 1/4 cup from 1/2 as originally written, based on a review and my own preference also.

Categories     Vegetable

Time 30m

Yield 6-8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 7

1 lb fresh green beans (or frozen whole haricots vert)
4 -6 plum tomatoes (4 if large, 6 if small) or 4 -6 roma tomatoes (4 if large, 6 if small)
1/4 cup olive oil
2 fresh garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons dried dill or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Fill a large pot approx 2/3 with water and bring to a boil. Add the tomatoes and cook for 30 seconds. Remove with tongs and put in a bowl with cold water. After a few minutes, remove the tomatoes, and peel, core, and finely chop them. (Don't drain the boiling water - you'll want this for the beans).
  • Place the oil in a large skillet over low heat. Add the chopped tomato, garlic, and basil. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  • While tomatoes are simmering, wash and trim the green beans. Cook in boiling water for 7-10 minutes depending on how small & tender your beans are.
  • Drain & briefly rinse the beans. Place in a serving bowl. Pour the tomatoes over the beans and toss to coat. Add salt and black pepper to taste. For best flavor, cover and let stand 5-10 minutes before serving.

Yield 1 pan, 6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 7

12 ounces green beans, ends snapped
1/4 cup butter
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 -4 slices prosciutto
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped

  • Cut the ends off the beans, then cook in salted boiling water until just tender. I steam them til they are still crisp and bright green.
  • Run cold water over beans to stop the cooking process.
  • Melt butter in a large pan and gently cook onions until soft, about 5 minutes.
  • Add Prosciutto, garlic, and parsley and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add the cream, stirring constantly, and bring to a light boil. Do not leave unattended, otherwise cream will burn.
  • Once mixture is hot, add green beans, mix to coat and warmed through.
