Green bean stew (loubyeh b’zeit) recipe

The Lebanese Recipes Kitchen (The home of delicious Lebanese Recipes and Middle Eastern food recipes) invites you to try Green bean stew (loubyeh b’zeit) Recipe. Enjoy quick and easy Middle Eastern food recipes and learn how to make Green bean stew (loubyeh b’zeit).

Loubyeh b’ zeit or green beans in olive oil (although, technically, it’s tomato sauce) is a Middle Eastern vegetarian one-pot dish. It’s incredibly simple to make, requires very few ingredients and is one of my favourite ways to have green beans. Preferably, use runner beans.

Bethany Kehdy


50 g butter
2 onions, thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
500 g runner beans, topped, strings removed
6 tomatoes, peeled, roughly chopped (or use canned Italian tomatoes)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
salt and pepper, to taste
olive oil, to taste
Lebanese bread, to serve

Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Resting time 5 minutes

Melt the butter in a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, cover and cook for 3-5 minutes or until translucent. Add the beans, cover and cook for a further 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, cinnamon, and allspice, and season with salt and pepper.

Cover and cook over low heat for 20 minutes or until the beans are cooked through but still have a gentle bite and the sauce is thickened. Remove the lid and cook until the excess liquid has evaporated and the sauce is thickened, if necessary.

Remove from heat, add the olive oil and stir to combine. Sit for 5 minutes.

Dish up and enjoy warm or at room temperature with some Lebanese bread to mop up all the juices.
