16 oz. green beans, ends trimmed, cut into 1 ½-inch pieces
1 ½ tbsp. olive oil
12 oz. cherry tomatoes, cut in half
3 medium garlic cloves, minced
⅓ tsp. sea salt or to taste
¼ tsp. pepper or to taste
⅛ tsp. red pepper flakes or to taste
Boil a medium-sized pot of water with a generous amount of salt in it. Toss in the trimmed green beans and cook for 5-10 minutes. You can cook them more or less, depending on how soft or firm you like your green beans.
