Print this Recipe    I forget the proper name for these green beans (loubieh?), but they

are absolutely delicious. I have no exact measurements, but they're
difficult to screw up.

The first step is to make a sort of pesto from cilantro & garlic:

In a mortar and pestle make a paste by smashing garlic with salt
(approximately 1/4-1/2 tsp for about 3-4 cloves of garlic). Add
cilantro leaves and continue to pound until you make a nice green
paste. For 4 cloves of garlic, you can probably add close to two
good handfulls of cilantro leaves.

*This is a *terrific* way to store unused portions of cilantro.
Smash up all the cilantro with garlic & salt, pile onto a piece of
Saran wrap, roll into a tube & freeze. You can then slice of a
piece whenever you like.*

Pour olive oil into a pot and simmer the cilantro pesto over low
heat for a couple of minutes. Add your washed & snapped green
beans and simmer over low heat to desired doneness. Lebanese
generally like them pretty done.
