Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

Preparation

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven, and heat the oven to 400°F. On a small rimmed baking sheet, toss the tomatoes with 1 Tbs. of the oil, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. black pepper. Bake until the skins crack, about 15 minutes. Set aside.
  • Heat the remaining 3 Tbs. oil in a large, deep skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add the pepper flakes and stir. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Reduce the heat to medium low. Add the green beans and soy sauce. Stir to coat the beans, cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Uncover and gently stir in the tomatoes. Cook until the beans are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    Cherry tomatoes blistered beautifully!
    Loved this recipe but will reduce the "remaining 3 Tbs of coconut oil" by half.

    Ok... the rating might be because I used chilli flakes instead of red pepper flakes thinking they are the same thing. Also, we just found this SPICY. Not for me but someone else is likely to find this delightful.
