3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

¼ teaspoon salt

⅓ cup water

1 cup grape tomatoes, halved

1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and coarsely chopped

¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the garlic to a small plate with a slotted spoon, leaving the oil behind. Add beans and salt to the pan. Stir to coat. Add water; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are just tender and the water is mostly evaporated, about 8 minutes. Add the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil, tomatoes, and capers to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are just beginning to break down, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add parsley and the sizzled garlic. Stir to combine.
