Loubia (Algerian Green Beans with Almonds)

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Fresh green beans
  • 4 c Water -- salted
  • 3 tb Peanut oil
  • 1 Clove garlic -- mashed
  • 1/2 ts Ground cumin
  • 1/4 ts Paprika
  • 1/4 ts Ground cloves
  • 1 tb Slivered almonds


This is a variation on an Algerian recipe from Rose Dosti's Middle Eastern
Cooking. Since when is North Africa in the Middle East? You may well ask.

Clean and trim green beans. Simmer in lightly salted water until just
tender, about 30-45 minutes. Drain and put in serving dish.

Put remaining ingredients (except almonds) in a saucepan over medium heat
and cook for two minutes, stirring constantly. Add the almonds and stir
briefly to coat.

Pour the oil mixture over the green beans and toss gently until beans are
thoroughly coated. Serve warm.

Canned green beans are not an acceptable substitute in this recipe.
Powdered garlic is probably OK.
