Green Beans and Olive Oil Saute – Loubieh Bi Zait.


Loubieh Ingredients (4 servings)

•             3 lbs of green beans

•             3 medium onions (yellow or white)

•             2/3rd cup of extra virgin olive oil

•             1 to 2 teaspoons of Syrian 7-spices

•             1/2 teaspoon of salt

Preparation Method

1.            Rinse the green beans well then cut off the stems (about 1/3rd of an inch from each side). You could break the stems away with your nails or with a knife.

2.            Finely chop the onions then saute them in olive oil in a deep pot on medium heat for about 15-20 minutes or until they start turning pinkish.

3.            At which time add the green beans, add the salt and half of the 7-spices, mix very well to make sure the olive oil and onions covers all the beans, cover the pot well, lower the heat and let simmer for 45-55 minutes while stirring and mixing every 5-10 minutes.

4.            Once cooked, the green beans will turn into a dark “olive” color. Add the remaining 7-spices at the end and mix well with the beans before serving.

5.            Serve hot or cold (taste much better) with pita bread and a side of veggies like radish, bell peppers or green onions.
