Lebanese Green Beans, Lubie

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by cooking kimmy

My grandmother was from Syria and she always made these green beans for family gatherings. I have cut the oil to one tablespon, while dieting and left out the pine nuts, and they are still awesome. They are also one of my favorite omlette stuffings, with a little feta cheese...Enjoy!

I made this without the topping. I thought the spices were a bit too much.
