Green beans and tomatoes stew, from Taste of Beirut

Green beans and tomato stew, from Taste of Beirut (on Soup Chick).

My food writing career began in the kitchen of a Lebanese restaurant at the end of our block in Boston's South End neighborhood. The wife of the owner (who was also the chef) taught me to make this green beans and tomatoes stew, almost exactly like Joumanna's recipe on Taste of Beirut, and reading about it brings back wonderful memories. Vegan and gluten-free, this stew uses seasonal vegetables and lots of garlic, and it's perfect for Meatless Monday alongside a bowl of rice pilaf, as my friends at Cedars Restaurant used to serve it.

This sounds wonderful. I'm a fan of a Greek dish called Fasolakia (I think) and this sounds similar!

Kalyn, this dish brings back such good memories for me. I don't think I've ever tried the Greek dish but I'm going to look for a recipe (on your blog).
