Sautéed Green Beans & Cherry Tomato

Preparation: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

•     2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
•     1 pound green beans, trimmed
•     1/2 cup water
•     2 cloves garlic, minced
•     1 1/2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
•     1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
•     Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions:

1.  Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add green beans and cook, stirring often, until seared in spots, 2 to 3 minutes.
2.  Add water, cover, reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes for tender-crisp or 6 minutes for tender.
3.  Push the beans to the side; add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, stir everything together and cook until the tomatoes begin to break down, 2 to 3 minutes.
4.  Remove from heat; stir in vinegar, salt and pepper.
