This is an Arabic dish, similar to the Lebanese loubieh. Great served over rice with some warm flatbread. You can also add meat (lamb -- especially lamb! -- or beef works well) to this dish, but if you do, cook the meat until almost done before following the directions here.

  1. Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil in a pan until softened. Add the diced tomato and simmer for about 5 minutes, then add the remaining ingredients. When it starts to boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes, until the green beans are cooked.
  2. Serve over rice (and some warm flatbread would be nice, too).
