Recipe of Tunisian-Style Greens and Beans

Ingredient Name Quantity Unit
Vegetable Oil 3 Tablespoons
Onion, Sliced 1 Numbers
Cloves Garlic, Minced 2or3 Numbers
Ground Coriander 1 Teaspoons
Salt 1/2 Teaspoons
Crushed Chile Flakes 1/4 Teaspoons
Chopped Greens, Such As Beet Greens Or Swiss Chard 4 Cup
Tomatoes With Juices 1 Cup
Cooked Beans (garbanzos Are My Favorite) 1 Cup
Bean Cooking Water 1/2 Cup


1. Stew the onion and garlic in a little oil until the onion is soft.
2. Stir in the salt and spices.

3. Chop the greens and stir them in. (A little water left on the greens from washing them is good, it helps steam them done.)

4. When the greens wilt, add the tomatoes, beans and some of the bean cooking water.
Cook for 10 or 15 minutes.
The finished dish should be a little saucy, but not soupy.
Add bean water or plain water accordingly.
