Italian Braised Romano Beans

Serves 4-6


  • 1 lb. romano beans, stems removed
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Heat oil in a shallow, wide-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook until just starting to get golden brown. Add tomatoes and simmer for 6-8 minutes. Crush tomatoes then add balsamic vinegar and beans. Simmer until beans are tender – about 7-9 minutes. Remove from heat. Add oregano and salt and pepper to taste.
