“This is my grandmother’s recipe. You can use round or flat French beans (I prefer round and green). We eat this meal as a side dish to meat with potato. You can, of course eat this as a complete dish as lunch. If you want to preserve green color of your vegetables, put them into boiled water. I recommend using fresh vegetable, not canned or frozen – it is much, much better.”
