Green Bean Mile Recipe

Green Bean Mile Recipe

Green beans with roasted tomatoes, cipollini onions and kalamata olives.


  • 3 pounds green beans, cleaned, cut in half
  • 4 cups grape tomatoes
  • 2 cups peeled cipollini onions
  • 1 cup chopped pitted kalamata olives
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, peeled, minced
  • Olive oil Salt and pepper


  1. 1.

    In a large roasting pan, toss the onions with salt and pepper and enough olive oil coat them. Roast at 375°F for 40 minutes, or until the onions are nicely brown. Turn the onions every ten minutes or so to make sure they brown on all sides.

  2. 2.

    In a separate pan, toss the tomatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast at 375°F for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.

  3. 3.

    Saute the garlic in 1 tablespoon olive oil until it just starts to lightly brown, add olives and cook for 2 minutes over low-medium heat, remove from pan and set aside.

  4. 4.

    Saute green beans in a large pan with 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper for 3 to 5 minutes on medium-high heat, stirring to make sure they don’t brown, but turn bright green and keep some crunch.

  5. 5.

    Combine all ingredients well in a large bowl. Test for seasoning and serve.
