Green Beans with Onion and Tomato! GF/V

This warm salad recipe comes from Oxfam Shop’s suitably titled ‘Vegetarian Cookbook’. It’s simple, easy and super delicious. It hails from Mexico, so maybe that’s why I’m so partial to it! Mmmm, Mexican noms!


Chop off the ends and slice 1kg green beans into lengths of about 3cm.


Boil some water and cook beans for 8 to 10 minutes.


Drain and rinse under cool water.


Dice 1 red onion and 1 large tomato.


In a blender, add together 2 cloves garlic, 1/4 cup red wine vinegar, 1 tbsp dried thyme, 1 tbsp dried oregano and ground black pepper to taste.


Puree until well combined.


Add 1/2 cup olive oil and pulse to combine.


In a large bowl, mix beans, tomato and onion and add dressing. (Sorry about the blur!!!)


Stir together and serve immediately!

  1. Just tried making this. It was pretty good. Making the sauce in a blender was difficult as it was too deep, so I couldn’t chop up the garlic properly with it (use a food processor if you have one possibly).

    Other than that, I believe my wife and I used too much red onion. It was really good, but slightly overpowering.

    For people that aren’t specifically making this as a V/GF recipe, we’re going to try some grilled lemon pepper chicken (tofu might be a good substitute?) for the next batch. Also a little bit of Parmesan cheese (again, not v/gf) to top was very tasty.

    Overall. 4.5/5 😀

    • I’m so glad you made it!!!!! I usually mince my garlic beforehand, or use pre minced garlic… this makes it much easier. I agree that red onion can be VERY overpowering, I am a fan of it so the flavors worked fantastically for me.

      Thanks for your amazing suggestions, comments and feedback mister 😀
