    These were FANTASTIC! I used a little less than 2 TB of peanut oil, some extra lemon juice, and a whole bag of frozen petite whole green beans. The perfect accompaniment for all kinds of dishes and great on their own too.

    Proof once again that a simple side dish need not be boring. Garam masala is a favorite and gives the beans a mouth full of flavor, with the lemon juice adding the perfect punctuation. As suggested, I skipped the oil. I think a pinch of powdered ginger would be a strong addition. Thanks! Made for the "I recommend" Tag Game.

    DH and I absolutely licked our lips, the Garam Masala is distinctly different from any other spice combination, but it lends a mild but tantalizing spiciness. This recipe alone made me ecstatic that I had ordered the spice from Spices Etc. I was in shock that almost everything went into the pan from the start, but it worked out great. Thanks for sharing this recipe, AJO. Made for December 2008 Veg*n Swap.
