Equipment

  • Pan
  • Sharp knife
  • Measuring Spoons

Ingredients

  • 1 bag green beans whole, frozen but by all means if you have fresh green beans use it
  • 1 whole onion chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil extra virgin
  • 2 tsp Lebanese 7-spices equal parts of powder ginger, fenugreek powder, clove, cinnamon, black pepper, and all spice
  • ½ tsp salt

Instructions

  • Defrost green beans or if they are fresh wash and remove stems.
  • chop onions then saute them in olive oil and salt in a pan deep enough to hold all the green beans. Saute in medium heat till the onions are soft and almost threatening to brown. Prox 10 min.
  • add the green beans, a little more salt and 1tsp 7-spices, mix well. Let green bean simmer for 25 min stirring occasionally.
  • When the green beans are done it will be fairly dark. Turn off the heat and sprinkle the rest of the 7 spice and mix before serving.
  • Serve hot or cold but I prefer just room temperature.
