recipe image

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • cup water

  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved

  • 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and coarsely chopped

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the garlic to a small plate with a slotted spoon, leaving the oil behind. Add beans and salt to the pan. Stir to coat. Add water; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are just tender and the water is mostly evaporated, about 8 minutes. Add the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil, tomatoes, and capers to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are just beginning to break down, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add parsley and the sizzled garlic. Stir to combine.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
