A very simple recipe, yet a bit different from your regular string bean side dish. You can serve this warm or chilled, I always serve it chilled as a salad.

This was so good! I made half the recipe, and later in the week regretted not having any more leftovers! The flavor was outstanding and the method was super-easy. I served it with recipe #176499 and recipe #83289.
- 3 lbs fresh string beans
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup oil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon turmeric
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cumin
Directions See How It's Made
- Wash and trim the string beans.
- I usually start out with more string beans than the 3 pounds called for in the recipe since I eat a lot raw and not all of them make it into the pot.
- Combine with all the other ingredients in a 3 quart pot and mix.
- Cook, covered on a small flame for 30 minutes.
- Serve warm or chilled.
