Author: Samantha Ferraro


  • 1 pound fresh green beans any color you'd like
  • 1 pint heirloom cherry tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped finely
  • 2 Tb capers optional
  • Olive oil for drizzling
  • Fresh cilantro or parsley for garnish
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Squeeze of lemon juice


  • In a sautee pan, drizzle about 1 Tb of olive oil and add chopped garlic. Saute on medium heat until just starting to change color.
  • Add green beans and saute for 4-5 minutes, periodically closing with a lid to help them steam a bit but still stay snappy. Add cherry tomatoes and continue to sate until tomatoes begin to burst and release their juices. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Once done, turn off the heat and garnish with capers, fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lemon.


This is such a quick and easy dish and makes great leftovers.
