Ingredients

1 pound fresh green beans
1 3/4 cups coarsely chopped seeded peeled tomato (about 2 tomatoes)
1/3 cup less-sodium beef broth
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 ounces reduced-fat, low-salt ham, diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preparation

Trim stem end from beans. Arrange beans in a steamer basket over boiling water; cover and steam 10 minutes.

Combine tomato and next 3 ingredients in a large saucepan. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat 3 minutes, stirring often. Stir in beans, parsley, thyme, and pepper. Cover and cook over low heat 10 minutes or until beans are tender.

Tip: When you season fresh beans with lean ham instead of ham hock, you get all of the flavor but none of the fat.
