We are big fans of Greek green beans. Add in thin thin thin slices of onions and lots of tasty oregano and some fresh tomatoes (go Black Sheep tomatoes go!) and let the tomatoes cook down while the beans kind of steam. They always come out still perfectly crunchy. Top it with some greek yogurt and mmmm it is almost a full meal!

Looks yummy - nothing better than FRESH green beans.

A couple years ago, I heard a recipe on NPR for seared green beans. I made it for a couple family holiday dinners and get repeat requests to make it again.

Not sure if the audio still is saved along with the article (work computer blocks the audio), but listen to it if it's still available. The sound of searing the green beans sold me on this recipe.
