Serves 2 (serving size: about 4 ounces green beans and 2/3 cup corn and tomatoes)

The green beans retain their bright color and still get tender with this cooking method. Charring the corn and tomatoes enhances their flavor, and adds a nice pop of color. Use the kernels off a fresh ear of corn, if possible, but frozen, thawed corn will work, too. Make it with the Lemon-Garlic Chicken, pictured

How to Make It

Step 1

Place the green beans, onion, and 1/4 cup water in a medium skillet. Bring to a boil over medium-high. Cook until the water has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of the oil, and 1/8 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper; cook until the beans and onions are tender, about 5 minutes longer. Transfer to a plate. Reserve half for Day 2 Lunch.

Step 2

Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to the skillet, and swirl to coat. Add the tomatoes and corn; cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes burst and the corn is charred. Toss with the lemon juice and remaining 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Reserve half for Day 3 Dinner. Add the remaining corn and tomatoes to the plate with the green beans.
