  2. Add the beans, carrots, capsicum, dry oregano and pepper, and stir well. Saute for about 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste and water, cover with lid, then cook stirring occasionally for 15-20 minutes or until the beans and carrots are cooked to desired softness. (you can add a bit more water if you prefer more sauce). Stir through the fresh oregano once done.

Note: Chilli would go nicely in this recipe so you could add some in at step 2.

    What you posted was very logical. However, what
    about this? suppose you added a little content? I ain’t suggesting your information is
    not good, but what if you added something that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Nutrition Savvy
    | Green Beans with Tomato & Vegetables is kinda boring.
    You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write news headlines to get people
    to open the links. You might add a video or a related pic
    or two to get readers interested about what you’ve got
    to say. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.
