Beans with Tomatoes

Adapted from Die frische K├╝che by Andrea Karrer


500 g beans, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch sections
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 fresh or pickled chile, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 kg tomatoes, skinned and thickly sliced
salt and pepper


Blanch the beans in salted water for about 8-10 minutes. Drain and set aside.

In a skillet, heat the olive oil and fry the onion on medium heat until translucent. Add the garlic and chile and fry until fragrant. Add the tomatoes and let simmer for about 15 minutes. Stir in the beans and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
