A lesser known bean variety, yellow Italian flat beans, also known as wax beans, are a must on your grocery list. In this recipe, olive oil, garlic, and fresh heirloom tomatoes are the simplest of flavors, yet they enhance the tender cooked beans in a way that tastes like magic. Serve this as a side to roasted cauliflower or a meaty grain-based loaf.

I live life in abundance and my cooking reflects that. I have always loved to travel and when my love of cooking came along it begun to define who I am and what I love to do. A day in the kitchen is pure pleasure for me, even if I have to wash a few dishes in the process. I begun publishing Olive Oil & Lemons, a food and travel blog, as a place to express my love of cooking, share my recipes and have a place for my friends and family to gather around a virtual table where we can talk about food, travel and about life lived in abundance.
