This is a Syrian recipe called fasoliyyeh bi z-zayt which is delicious and surprisingly filling when eaten with pita bread. Use fresh or frozen beans.

These were the most delicious green beans I've ever had! Not a pretty recipe, but so delicious. Never would have thought of coriander and green beans together, but was absolutely delicious --I couldn't get enough of them, and they were excellent reheated the next day in the microwave! Will DEFINITELY add these to my veg. side dish favorites. Such simple ingredients and preparation, but a wonderfully complex flavor!

This met both of my criteria for a 5 star recipe...simple and delicious! My husband is Lebanese and we make something similar with fresh green beans but there are onions and tomato paste in it too. I think that I could add those to this recipe if I wanted and it would be just as delicious! This is a keeper for sure!

So simple to make, every one loved it. I used the left over for lunch, in a sandwich wrap with a little bit of hummus spread.

The most simple recipe in the world. But also so very delicious. Proves that you just need good ingredients, and not elaborate cooking methods.

This has become my favourite way to prepare green beans. I was amazed at how big an impact the coriander had on the end result I think I even use close to half cup of coriander. I try to be careful with the oil, because I don't like me beans very oily. I also like to turn the heat up a little the last few minutes and brown the beans slightly. Make sure to keep stirring if you turn the heat up.

I tried this recipe with fresh green beans. I cut them up and soaked them for 5 minutes in salt water, then followed the recipe as advised. It was great! I served it as a side dish to pork chops and pasta! Would definitely do again.
