Green Beans and Tomatoes



Green beans in the summer are in abundance.  The same traditional recipes over and over get tiring.  This is going to be one of many recipes to break out of the rut of what to do with all these green beans.

1 pound               green beans

1 cup                     yellow cherry or grape tomatoes halved

1 tsp                      olive oil or coconut oil

1 tsp                      salted butter or ghee (I prefer Kerrygold and Tin Star respectively)

1 tsp                      Beau Monte seasoning

1 tsp                      Lemon Pepper seasoning


Over medium heat in a skillet add olive oil or coconut oil with ghee or butter, let melt until it starts to sizzle and boil.  Add green beans tossing them until they are well coated with melted mixture.  Cover for about 5 minutes.  Uncover green beans, tossing occasionally until tender and start to shrivel.

Once green beans are desired tenderness add tomatoes and heat through.

Sprinkle with Beau Monte and lemon pepper, take off heat, and let sit about a minute prior to serving.
