  3. Finely chop the red onions. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.
  4. Heat a frying pan with coconut oil. Turn up the heat.
  5. Add the green beans and stir-fry them for about 5 minutes until crispy and cooked.
  6. Add the red onions and fry them for 2 minutes. Add the cherry tomatoes in the last minute.
  7. Serve the plates and garnish with nutritional yeast.
