This recipe is a combination of two from two of my favorite cookbook writers: Marcella Hazan and Mark Bittman.

Sun Oven Green Beans with Butter and Tomato


3 tablespoons butter, cut into chunks

1 onion, finely chopped

1 can (14-ounce) chopped or crushed tomatoes

1 pound green beans, tips trimmed

Combine all the ingredients in a large sauce pan or oven to table dish. Cover and transfer to the Sun Oven. Cook until the beans are very tender, about 2 hours.
