Green Beans in Tomato sauce isn't something I would intuitively put together, but turns out, it is really really good. Onion, garlic, smoked paprika to flavour is the flavour base for a can of diced tomatoes, then toss in the green beans, simmer away. Tuck in some toasty crusty bread, garnish everything with parsley (and chopped almonds if you want) and dig in. I ate this with some roasted potatoes on the side. YUM. Best part, I don't think I even spent 30 minutes whipping this up.
This dish is from a cookbook I have called Vegan Recipes from Spain by Gonzola Baro. I didn't change much. The small changes: I blanched the green beans less time, and then let them finish cooking in the tomato sauce, and I also garnished the dish with some toasted chopped almonds.
I'm really enjoying becoming more acquainted with Spanish dishes here and there. Whenever I try something new I send it to Jose, who is from Valencia, to see if he knows anything about it. This dish he told me is one his mother makes on occasion. I wish we didn't live so far apart so he could taste and give me feedback, but for now I can only share pictures. I try to look on the bright side...I'll have a repertoire of Spanish dishes to share with him when we are together again.
