  • 2 tablespoon Sun dried tomatoes, chopped ($0.21)
  • 1 tablespoon White wine vinegar ($0.04)
  • 3 tablespoon Olive oil ($0.36)
  • ½ teaspoon Salt ($0.05)
  • ¼ teaspoon Black pepper ($0.02)
  • 2 teaspoon Garlic, minced ($0.10)
  • 4 Pearl onions, peeled and sliced ($0.30)
  • 1 ½ lbs Green beans ($3.70)


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the tomatoes, vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, and onions.
  • Toss in the green beans until well coated.
  • Lay the coated green beans and mix in an even layer on your baking sheet.
  • Bake in the oven for 15-25 minutes, depending on how crisp or soft you would like them.
  • Serve warm.


You can use dried or marinated sun-dried tomatoes for this baked green beans and tomatoes recipe. I've tried it with both and there's no difference.
You are also welcome to add even more tomatoes if you truly enjoy the flavor profile but just this small amount is enough to give a great essence throughout the dish. You can also choose between pearl onions or thinly sliced regular onions. With regular onions you won't even need half a small one, Just a few small slices (like 3 or 4) is plenty.


You can keep this side dish's leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3-5 days. For best results, I recommend eating it within 3 days.

Make Ahead

You can prepare the entire dish beforehand and simply keep it in a covered bowl or Ziploc bag until ready to eat. This gives the flavor longer to develop as well. I recommend not making it more than a day in advance.

How to prepare fresh green beans

Wash your green beans and trim off the ends on both sides to remove the wooden-like stems. These won't soften while coking and are unpleasant to bite down on. Rinse again if desired and pat dry the greens before using to avoid adding too much moisture into the recipe.
