I always enjoy this combination of tender green beans and garlicky tomatoes during summer and autumn. It can be served as part of an al fresco spread, or with the meats at a barbecue, but even on its own with a good hunk of bread it’s a lovely supper dish.
Heat the oil in a large saucepan or frying pan, add the onion, and cook gently for at least 10 minutes, until soft but not colored. Add the garlic and cook gently for another minute or two, then add the tomatoes and stir well. Stir in the beans, bring the mixture to a gentle simmer, and season well. Turn down the heat, partly cover the pan, and cook very gently, stirring frequently, for about 30 minutes, until the beans are fully tender. Season with salt and pepper. If the mixture seems to be in danger of sticking, add a splash of water or stock. Serve warm or cold.
