Green Beans with Olive Oil (Zeytinyagli Yesil Fasulye)

1 lb green beans, fresh/canned/frozen cut in 2-3
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp tomato paste
1 tomato, diced
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt to taste
½ tsp sugar
¼ tsp black pepper (optional)
½-1 cup hot water

In a pot, sauté onions with olive oil. Then add tomato paste and tomatoes, sauté over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. And then stir in green beans. If you use fresh green beans, wash them and drain. Cut them in French style or 1 inch pieces. If you use canned beans, drain them before using. If using frozen beans, just add them into the pot. Do not thaw them.
Cook the green beans for a couple of minutes and then stir in salt, sugar and hot water. Close the lid and simmer over low heat till the green beans are cooked.
Sprinkle some black pepper on top (optional), before serving.
ENJOY
