A taste of Persia

This is the ultimate 'fast' food.

Green beans are a favorite Persian food and you can give them an authentic Middle Eastern “kick” with chickpeas and this curry-like dressing.

Phyne Dyning can be fast and easy.  Use canned vegetables for this dish and you will have a side-dish fit to accompany the finest main course in a matter of minutes.

1 14oz can French-cut green beans, drained

1 14oz can chickpeas (garbanzos), drained

2 tbs tomato paste

¼ tsp garlic powder

½ tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp turmeric

½ tsp ground ginger

pinch cayenne pepper

salt and freshly ground pepper

Place the drained vegetables in a medium-sized pot and warm over medium-low heat.  Stir in the tomato paste and spices.  Season with salt and pepper.  Continue warming until warm or hot, but this can be served at any temperature.  Be careful not to overcook the green beans though.

Phyne dyning does not come any easier!  Serves four.
