A Quick and Easy but Totally Delicious Side-dish

Serves 4 as a side-dish


  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 cups Green Beans, washed and trimmed
  • 4 Cloves of Garlic, peeled
  • 1 Large Tomato, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp Chili Flakes
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan Cheese, optional


  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan on medium high. While it heats, slice the garlic as thinly as you can, into chips.
  2. When the pan is hot, add the green beans and the garlic. Sautee for 4-5 minutes, stirring regularly, until the garlic gets crispy and the green beans blister.
  3. Add the tomato, chili flakes, salt and pepper. Stir quickly, and the tomato will break down and combine with the oil to make a sauce. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until the tomato is broken down and the sauce comes together.
  4. Remove to a bowl and top with the cheese, if using. Enjoy!
