My house is full of boxes and my kitchen cupboards almost empty but I still try to cook some healthy yummy food even though my relocation to Amsterdam is nearly there.
I think you will like this Sicilian dish – Fagiolini alla Peperonata. It goes great with meat and fish and tastes lovely on its own as well.
I served my Fagiolini alla Peperonata with veal escallopes filled with sage and Parma ham. Heaven!
Green beans with tomato and pepper
You will need:
1 yellow/green/red pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
300 g green beans (2 handfuls)
1 tablespoon fresh or dry oregano
1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves, chopped
Peal and chop the tomatoes. Halve and seed the pepper, then cut into stripes.
Heat the oil in the skillet, add the onion and garlic and sauté until golden. Add the peppers and cook gently for 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook over medium-low heat for 30 minutes.
Trim the beans and cook for 3-5 minutes in salted water. Drain and add to the other vegetables. Season with salt and pepper, add oregano and basil and cook for 2 more minutes. Transfer to a serving plate. Enjoy!
