“Here's a simple saute that is well suited for a special meal and versatile enough for your everyday repertoire.”


    • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
    • ½ cup water
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1½ cups halved cherry tomatoes
    • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste


  • 1 Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add green beans and cook, stirring often, until seared in spots, 2 to 3 minutes. Add water, cover, reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes for tender-crisp or 6 minutes for tender. Push the beans to the side; add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, stir everything together and cook until the tomatoes begin to break down, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar, salt and pepper.
