Green beans and tomatoes are a terrific combination which I found out when my BF and I ordered this dish at a middle eastern restaurant a few years ago. It can be found in Italian cuisine as well but I prefer the middle eastern (Lebanese) variety. This is a meatless version which I adapted from a recipe off the internet and like to serve over rice or couscous, making a light meal or more substantial side dish. The idea is to cook until the beans are in between soft and crisp so they have a nice consistency that goes well with the tomatoes. If you have no problem with inauthenticity, sprinkle with parmesan cheese too and you'll get the best of both worlds.
