“A very unique and delicious combination! A tweaked version of Middle Eastern Recipe's "Yakhnit Lobia" ( The original recipe calls for twice the green beans given here plus 1/2 lbs cubed veal, which I imagine is also good and would make a meal of itself, but I like this as a green bean side dish with a kick! Don't let the ingredient list scare you, the combination is very delicious.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the onions in the butter until softened and slightly browned.
  2. Add the tomato paste, salt, pepper, and cinnamon and stir around. It'll be a bit pasty.
  3. Add drained green beans and mix thoroughly. Make sure beans are well coated with the tomato-onion mix. Do this till green beans are at desired temperature.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
  5. Note: The cinnamon does make this a bit spicy - not very -- - but if you want less kick, I'd say use 1/2 teaspoons of salt, pepper, and cinnamon instead of whole.
