Moroccan Style Green Beans

Moroccan Style Green Beans

Oh, so good! I could sit down and enjoy a meal of just these.


  • Green beans, 1 lb.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1/4 cup
  • Plum tomatoes, 4 petite diced
  • Tomato Paste, 4 TB
  • Garlic, 3-4 cloves minced
  • Turmeric, 1.5 tsp.
  • Cumin, 1.5 tsp.
  • Salt, 1.5 tsp.
  • Hot paprika, 1 tsp.
  • Lemon, juice of 1/2



On another occasion, these were some organic French style green beans I was able to get at Costco. Beautiful:

  1. Sauté the minced garlic in extra virgin olive oil.
  2. Add petite diced tomatoes, tomato paste and other seasonings and simmer for a short while.
  3. Add prepared green beans, stir, cover and cook 30 minutes.
  4. Stir, replace cover, and cook another 30 minutes.
  5. Adjust seasonings to taste.


Eat and enjoy, or serve up as part of a mezze, a Middle Eastern-style “appetizer” table.
