Green Beans & Tomatoes

Enjoy the last few weeks of summer!  We’re winding down on the summer items and so looking forward to fall!

ingredients

5 slices bacon (optional)

1 onion - diced

All the heirlooms from your box - chopped into large chunks

All the green beans from your box - stem ends snapped off

Cayenne pepper to taste

instructions

If using, slice the bacon into 1 inch pieces and cook them in a large skillet.  Keep cooking until the bacon turns brown, then add the onion.  If you are not using bacon, heat some olive oil in your skillet, and once hot, add the onion.  Stir and cook until the bacon and onions are both nice and golden.

Add the green beans into the pan with the bacon and onions.  Add all the tomatoes, along with their juices.  Stir gently and then cover and reduce heat to low.  Cook for a half an hour.  

Add your cayenne pepper.  If you did not use bacon, you are going to want to add some good salt to taste, at the end of the cooking process!
