Basil Beans and Tomatoes
pound fresh green beans, trimmed, or two 9-ounce packages frozen whole green beans, thawed

- If using fresh green beans, precook, covered, in a medium saucepan in a small amount of boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain; set aside.
- Place margarine or butter in a wok or large skillet. (Add more margarine as necessary during cooking.) Preheat over medium-high heat until margarine melts. Stir-fry green beans in margarine for 3 minutes.
