Summer tomatoes are a thing of beauty, but what if you're wanting to take a (short) break from all those caprese salads? Try this Spanish-inspired-side that braises chopped fresh tomatoes alongside sturdy romano beans; the tomatoes bring a welcome burst of acidity and a touch of sweetness to the final dish.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a medium saucepan over medium-high. Add oil and garlic; cook until fragrant and sizzling, about 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook until they begin to break down, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir in beans and cilantro; bring to a simmer, then cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Season to taste and serve, drizzled with more oil and sprinkled with cilantro leaves.
