Cannelloni Beans

Simple and fresh - this is a basic side

Fresh Beans
shopping = mildly difficult
difficulty = low
expense = low

2 lbs fresh beans in pod (could be anything - Cannelloni, Garbanzo)
1 heirloom tomato, seeds removed and rough chop
5 T. extra virgin olive oil
1 T. sea salt
1 bay leaf
1 clove garlic smashed
  1. remove beans from pod (this took me about 30 minutes)
  2. boil in UNSALTED water for 10 minutes and drain
  3. in clean (& dry) pot add olive oil, bay, garlic
  4. heat to medium high until garlic fragrance is evident
  5. add drained beans and tomato
  6. reduce heat to low and partially cover
  7. cook for 30 minutes
