Sunday, July 11, 2010

Today i was planning to cook liver (ciğer sarma) which my friend Dimitris reccomended but i couldnt find the proper ingredients at our butcher so i cooked vegetable which is more suitable for summer..
Green beans healthy, light ,tasty and easy to cook just you need to watch which bean you get, some beans dont cook for hours and hours!!
it should be stringless.


500 gr green beans
olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 tbsp sugar
2 tomatoes, chopped

First, wash the beans, trim both ends and shave along the sides with a knife. In a large pot place the onion and olive oil. Cook them together for about 3-4 minutes. Add the beans, garlic, salt, sugar, tomatoes. Pour in 1 cup of water.cook for 35-40 minutes(some beans can take more time,it should be soft), and add another half cup of water midway through. If needed, you can add more water later.

Let it cool for sometime, and it is ready to serve.
Bon appetit..
