Garlic-Herb Sautéed Cherry Tomatoes

You could also make this dish with the smaller grape tomatoes. Serve the tomatoes as a vegetable side dish, or toss them with pasta for a light vegetarian main dish.

1 cup water
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups cherry tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon oregano
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

1 In a large nonstick skillet, bring 1/2 cup of the water and the garlic to a boil over medium heat. Boil until the garlic is tender, about 1 minute.
2 Add the tomatoes, salt, and oregano, and cook until the tomatoes begin to collapse, about 4 minutes.
3 Add the remaining 1/2 cup water, the vinegar, scallions, and basil, and toss well to combine. Makes 4 servings
