Green Beans & Stewed Tomatoes

by Jill Dalton

I created this delicious Plant Based recipe to emulate a dish that is served at one of my favorite restaurants in Cary, NC. This recipe has the added benefit of being salt and oil free! It is great as a side dish or a main dish.

Hi Jill. I am VERY new to plant based eating idea and I want to try to change our eating habits ( which I thought ware pretty healthy ) I would like to make the above recipe,( and a few more ) I m just worried that my family will feel like “something is missing”. You also mentioned that it could be a “side” dish. I am wondering what would you serve with it ? Your response is greatly appreciated in advance !!! Thank you

Hello Erika, we usually eat this with baked potatoes or mashed potatoes. We frequently just have meals with a mixture of sides. Baked spaghetti squash, vegan mac & cheese and scalloped potatoes are always good options
