Fresh herbs give these green beans amazing flavor. Olive oil and garlic add to the simple preparation of this delicious recipe.


  • 11/2 pounds green beans or romano beans
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced garlic
  • 1 cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh oregano leaves
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock or canned low-sodium chicken broth
  • Cooking Directions

    Fill a medium bowl with ice and cold water, and set it aside.

    Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the beans and cook them until

    crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Then immediately drain the beans and submerge them in the ice bath. When they are cool enough to handle, drain them well. Trim the ends and cut the beans into 2-inch

    lengths on the diagonal. Set them aside.

    Heat half of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring,

    until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the remaining oil and the tomatoes, thyme, rosemary, oregano,

    salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until the tomatoes have softened slightly, about 2 minutes.

    Add the stock and the reserved beans, and cook, stirring, until the beans are heated through and well

    coated with the garlic and tomatoes, 2 to 3 minutes.

    Serve immediately.
