Green Beans as a Side Dish

I posted a while ago about Zingo's Cafe green beans as a side dish. And I made my own recipe for this that is similar to it but more tasty. Maybe it is because I used seasoned diced tomatoes, chicken bouillon cube and more vegetables like bell pepper and onion. Here's my recipe. Note: if you are using chicken bouillon, salt is not anymore needed but you can still add if you want it a bit salty.

1/2 lb green beans, cut in 1-inch pieces
1/4 pc green or red bell pepper
1 onion
1 can diced tomatoes with basil, oregano and garlic (you may use fresh tomatoes)
1/2 cube chicken bouillon
1 cup water
salt and pepper(optional)
In a saucepan, boil water with onion, green pepper. When it boils, add green beans and the rest of the ingredients. Simmer for a few minutes till green beans are tender. Stir occasionally. Serve with your favorite meat dishes or with rice.
