String beans are such a versatile and nutritious side dish. I serve them often during the week, so when I serve them on Shabbos or Yom Tov I like to make them taste extra delicious! This recipe always hits the spot, and it freezes perfectly too.


Main ingredients

  • 1 lb frozen string beans

  • 1 onion

  • 2 tsp olive oil (for sautéing)

  • 3 tbsp tomato paste

  • 3 tbsp water

  • 1 and 1/2 tbsp honey

  • 1 tsp white vinegar

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper

  • 1 pinch salt


Prepare the Greenbeans


Heat the olive oil in a medium sized pot. While the oil is heating up, slice the onion into thin rings. Once the oil is hot, add the sliced onions and let them caramelise and soften on a low flame, stirring occasionally. 


Add the green beans and let them cook for 3 minutes together with the caramelised onions. Add all the remaining ingredients and stir well. Allow the mixture to come to the boil and then let it simmer on a low heat for 20 – 30 minutes, depending on how soft you like your string beans. The sauce should thicken and the string beans should be well coated. Enjoy!
