how can you go wrong with bean and cilantro, two of our summer favorites. Made for 123 tag and will be making again when more beans and cilantro are availble.. fresh.

I prefer cilantro uncooked and added it as a garnish and not to the pan. Used freshly picked green beans from the vine and gorgeous cilantro from our CSA box. Options for cooking the beans could be steamed or (pan) grilled. Very tasty, super easy and will make often! Made for A Taste of Syria tag game.

OMG, this was fabulous! For me the only issue is planning to use an entire bunch of cilantro, as it doesn't keep very well. But after I made Wish I Could Cook's Moroccan Harira Soup yesterday, I had just enough for this recipe. Made for Vegan Swap 13.
