Green Beans Algerian-Style

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

Found this recipe on the web recently. Love the combination of flavors. Use the best quality green beans available. Canned beans won't work in this recipe. UPDATE: I've eliminated the step for submerging the beans in ice cold water per suggestion of a reviewer. Always room for improvement!

Great flavor combo! These went very nicely with my sesame fish. Thanks for posting!
