Algerian green beans, called Loubia, are a nice side dish to almost any meal. Make them ahead and reheat in the oven at the last minute.
1 lb fresh green beans
3 Tbsp peanut oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
a hefty pinch ground cloves
3 Tbsp slivered almonds
1. Steam green beans until tender, about 15 minutes (or if you like them firmer, that’s okay too).
2. In a small skillet over medium heat, combine oil, garlic, cumin, paprika, and cloves. Saute until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add slivered almonds and cook for 1 minute more.
3. In a large serving bowl toss green beans with seasoned oil. Serve hot.
