                         Juice from the Tomatoes
 
   CHOOSE BEANS THAT ARE BRIGHT GREEN and firm. The
   smaller ones will be less fibrous. Top and tail them,
   then cut into pieces about 1 1/2-inches long and wash
   well. Peel the onions and slice them in thin rounds.
   Warm the olive oil, add the onion, garlic, and cook
   over a gentle heat for several minutes until the
   onions begin to soften. Salt lightly, then add the
   beans and cover them with the chopped tomatoes and
   herbs. Add several table- spoons tomato juice or
   water, cover the pan tightly and cook over medium heat
   until the beans are tender, about 15 minutes.
