Lebanese Green Beans

Making the Pesto Paste:

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.

Smash up all the cilantro with garlic and salt, pile onto a piece
of Saran wrap, roll into a tube and freeze. You can then slice of
a piece whenever you like and use it to flavor beans and other dishes.

Making the Beans:

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

Say Bismillah and eat!
