I found this yummy and easy
recipe for Greek green beans on a vegetarian cooking site www.all-creatures.org.
As mentioned on our home page, green bean have a world-wide appeal and every
culture has adapted them with their own unique taste. Greek's
prefer their green beans simmered until the beans are soft. They add onions, tomatoes,
garlic and oregano.
