Green Beans Stew . الفاصوليا الخضراء المصريه


Today I will share with you one of My mother's favourite Vegetable recipes . It's was a favourite recipe for her because it's so easy , healthy &  we all like it too :) You can do it with meat , Chicken , or if you are a vegetarian you can also do it with vegetable stock. These day there are lots & lots of Fresh green Beans , so I simply buy them , clean them & cut them into one inch sized pieces , boil them in some salted water for a minute or two an freeze them , I like preparing my own vegetables  ,but I also use the forzen ones ! 
This dish is served with Rice ,or you can also eat it with Bread. Hope you like it & try it & give me your feedbacks :)
