Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

This Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes recipe makes for a pretty dish and is easy to assemble. Fabulously tasty and easy! Healthy too!


The combination of butter, sugar, basil, and garlic is quite outstanding and perfect for tomatoes and beans.

If you don’t have the fresh vegetables on hand, you can easily adapt to canned goods.

This makes 4 really generous servings, but even so, this recipe is guaranteed to be gobbled whole… it’s really exceptional.

  • 1 1/2 pounds green beans
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes cut in half
  1. Cook beans in water, until tender.
  2. In a skillet, melt butter and add garlic salt, sugar, basil, salt, and pepper.

  3. Swish cherry tomato halves around until barely soft and heated, but not squishy.

  4. Add the drained beans and mix well.

Recipe Notes

TO SAVE TIME, you can use drained canned green beans instead of fresh green beans and canned stewed tomatoes instead of fresh cherry tomatoes. Just add the canned vegetables to the butter/basil mixture and heat through. I do this frequently and it works.
