Yellow Tomato Braised Beans
- Grate the cut side of each tomato quarter on the large holes of a box grater into a pie plate or shallow dish. Discard tomato skins. Stir 1 teaspoon salt and sugar into tomato pulp. Set aside.
- Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook and stir for 1 minute.
- Stir in tomato mixture and beans. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook for 12 to 15 minutes or until almost tender, stirring occasionally.
- Stir in thyme and lemon juice. Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes more or until the beans are tender and the tomato mixture thickens slightly and coats the beans. Stir in the butter. Season with pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
