Green Beans with Roasted Tomatoes and Cumin

An easy way to peel tomatoes is to place them in a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove them with a slotted spoon, then plunge the tomatoes into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. The skins will slide off easily.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sliced red onion
  • 1 garlic clove, sliced
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 large tomatoes, peeled and halved (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds, lightly crushed

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°.

Place onion and garlic on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Place tomato halves, cut sides up, over onion. Combine thyme, cumin, salt, black pepper, and red pepper; sprinkle over tomatoes. Lightly coat vegetables with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 40 minutes or until onion is browned and tomatoes are tender. Cool. Place mixture in a food processor; pulse 6 times or until mixture is slightly chunky. Stir in vinegar.

Cook beans in boiling water in a medium saucepan for 7 minutes or just until tender. Drain. Return to pan, and toss with olive oil. Add tomato mixture, and cook for 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
