Middle Eastern Style Green Beans

We love our vegetables and any tasty way of cooking them is always a treat.  This recipe is so quick and easy and so delicious it will be on your menu for a long time to come.  The cinnamon and allspice give it a deep sultry flavour and it’s very easy to just eat a bowl on it’s own with bread to mop up the sauce.

Middle Eastern Style Green Beans

Ingredients:

50 g butter

2 onions chopped

4 garlic cloves grated

500 g green beans topped & tailed

1 can of Italian tomatoes

1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon of allspice

Salt and pepper, to taste

Olive oil, to taste

Method:

Melt the butter in a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat

Add the onions and garlic, cover and cook until translucent

Add the tomatoes, cinnamon, and allspice, and season with salt and pepper

Add the beans, cover and cook over low heat for 20 -30 minutes or until the beans are cooked through but still have a little bite and the sauce is thickened

Remove the lid and cook until the excess liquid has evaporated and the sauce is thickened

Remove from heat, add the olive oil and stir to combine. Sit for 5 minutes

Can be eaten warm or cold with Lebanese bread to mop up all the juices or as a side dish for meat dishes

 

Bon Appetit!  🙂
