    The Zaar World Tour has me searching high and low for new recipes from all corners of the globe. This is an untried recipe by the simplicity and unusual inclusion of yogurt as a sauce for the beans appeals to me.

      These green beans were surprisingly good. As I was cooking the dish, I was apprehensive about it as the flavors weren't working for me. Luckily, it tasted great at the end, although my yogurt did curdle a bit. I also served this with your turkey kibbeh, and the two dishes really went well together.

      The beans had a nice flavour and I didnt read properly and added dried baby limas. That doesnt work lol. I took them out and served just the beans and onions.'I will try it again, but reading it first.

      I cooked this like Cookgirl, but with the Broad Beans. This is a lovely side dish that will complement so many meals.
