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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Great way to change up beans. Addressing prior reviews, it is much easier/faster to roast the tomato mixture on a hot outdoor grill on the grill pan made for roasting vegetables on a grill. Don't bother peeling the tomatoes. Try using smaller tomatoes and don't cut in half at all.

This was just terrible. The tomatoes added nothings to the green beans, if anything they made it avery unappealing mess. One of the worst recipes I've ever come across.
