Syrian Green Beans with Fresh Herbs
This is how my mom always made green beans. She got the recipe from a neighbor when we lived in Turkey. Make a double batch as they make an excellent healthy snack straight from the fridge. Add a thinly sliced onion and red bell pepper if you like. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
