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! - 29 Sep 2008
