Instructions: In a medium size skillet, over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil. When hot, add onion a cook for 3 minutes. Add carrot and cook for 2 minutes. Add green beans, tomatoes, and tomato paste, and cook 3 minutes. Add ½ cup olive oil and warm water. Adjust heat so that the mixture simmers. Simmer uncovered for anywhere from 25-45 minutes, depending on how soft you like your green beans. Check liquid level periodically, and add more water if necessary. By the end of cooking there should not be much water left. Add salt to taste. Let cool, or put in refrigerator to cool off. Beans will last 3 days in the refrigerator.
