Step by step recipe with photos and videos
For cooking, you will need the ingredients listed. In order to simplify and speed up the cooking process as much as possible, we use frozen green beans and tomatoes preserved in our own juice.
Heat vegetable oil over medium heat. Add finely chopped onions and, stirring occasionally, fry for 5-7 minutes, until soft and golden brown.
Then add the chopped garlic, a pinch of salt and sugar, and fry for another 1-2 minutes.
Add frozen green beans. Stir and fry the mixture for 2-3 minutes, so that the frost on the surface of the beans melts and the resulting moisture evaporates.
Add 1-2 tbsp. tomato paste. Stir in and fry for another 2 minutes.
Add the peeled tomatoes, cut into small pieces, in your own juice.
Stir, bring the mixture to a boil and add dried herbs, ground black pepper, a little salt and sugar to taste. If you plan to serve a dish with feta cheese - at this stage, you need to add a little salt, so that after adding the cheese, the dish does not turn out oversalted.
Reduce heat so that the mixture is constantly simmering, cover the pan with a lid and cook the beans for 10-15 minutes. In order for beans to remain slightly elastic, as a rule, whole pods need to be cooked for no more than 15 minutes, chopped ones - 10-12 minutes. To make the beans softer, increase the cooking time to 18-20 minutes.
After turning off the heat, sprinkle the dish with feta cheese, finely chopped parsley, or fresh herbs to taste.
Green beans in tomato sauce are ready.
