With summer being in full swing Amish gardens are bursting with a bounty of beans, tomatoes, melons, and more. We bought some green beans at the Amish-run Wayne County Produce Auction in Indiana and then promptly put them to good use in a wonder summer skillet meal. This is what Rachel came up with using the "Amish green beans" that we bought. It's a very colorful, hearty dish!
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion,thinly sliced
2 pounds green beans
1 1 /2 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
In a heavy cast iron skillet, sautee onions and garlic in olive oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add beans and tomatoes and turn down heat halfway. Cover and let cook for abut an hour stirring every minute few minutes. Season to taste
