Green Beans with Grape Tomatoes
What You'll Need:
2 quarts water
2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
6 tablespoons butter
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
What To Do:
- Bring 2 quarts water to a boil in a Dutch oven; add beans and cook 8 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain.
- Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat 6 to 7 minutes or until butter begins to brown. Add green beans, and sauté until tender. Stir in grape tomatoes and remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
Grape tomatoes are small and oval shaped with red or yellow skin and have a sweet flavor like summer tomatoes. Look for them at your local supermarket.
