Weight Watchers Buffalo Style Green Beans

Finally, another healthy recipe added to my blog! I made these Weight Watchers Buffalo Style Green Beans last spring and loved them. I can't believe it has taken me this long to make them again. They are a little spicy (I'm kind of a wimp when it comes to spice), so adjust the Tabasco to your liking. If you are looking for something a little different than plain green beans, try this! I totally skipped the chilling part and we ate this hot.

4 teaspoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon orange juice or lemon juice
2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
2 medium tomatoes, plum, diced (I used a can of diced tomatoes, drained)
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
3/4 pound green snap beans, trimmed and cooked until crisp tender (I steamed them in the microwave using my tupperware steamer - I love that thing.)
1 tablespoon basil, chopped
1/8 teaspoon black pepper or to taste
1/8 teaspoon table salt or to taste

Whisk together oil, Worcestershire sauce orange or lemon juice and hot pepper sauce. Stir in vegetables, basil, salt and pepper; chill for 1 hour or overnight. Divide into 4 portions and serve.

Serves 4.
