Stir-Fried Green Beans and Tomatoes
450g/1lb green beans, trimmed
1 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
225g/8oz baby plum tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
salt and ground black pepper
1 Cook the beans in a pan of lightly salted boiling water for 4–5 minutes, then drain well.
2 Heat the oil in a wok or deep frying pan over a high heat. Briskly stir-fry the beans with the garlic and tomatoes for 2–3 minutes until the beans are tender and the tomatoes are starting to soften without losing their shape.
3 Season with salt and pepper, stir in the parsley and serve.
