Sephardic Sting Beans in Tomato Sauce (Pareve)


2 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium-sized onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 pound string beans, rinsed in cold water, tips and ends snipped

Kosher salt to taste

1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce


1. In a large pot, heat olive oil on a medium flame. Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until softened but not burnt, about 2 minutes. Add the string beans to the pot. Sprinkle with salt and stir. Saute for 2 minutes, stirring.

2. Pour the tomato sauce into the pot and stir to coat string beans evenly. Cover pot and simmer on a medium low flame, until string beans are softened but not wilted, about 3-5 minutes. Serve immediately. Yield: 6 servings.
