Introduction

I had these once at a Greek restaurant and they were too salty. I made them at home and they are so much better. They're great as a side dish with Greek grilled pork, cucumber-yogurt sauce, salad and whole wheat toasted pita. I also like to just eat a huge bowl as a meal when I'm rushed. The recipe is for one, so just multiply for extra servings. I had these once at a Greek restaurant and they were too salty. I made them at home and they are so much better.

Ingredients

    2 cups green beans
    1/2 cup tomatoe sauce
    1/8 cup beef stock
    2 tsp garlic powder
    Red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper to taste

Directions

Make sure green beans are trimmed and washed. Heat four cups water to boil. Toss in green beans. Cook for ten to fifteen mintues. I like my still firm, with a bite to them. In small nonstick skillet, add tomato sauce, beef stock, garlic and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil, set heat at medium high and let simmer so sauce can thicken and come together. Drain green beans, plate and pour sauce over top. Enjoy.
Makes 1 serving.
