Fosolia - Ethiopian green bean and carrot stew

Submitted by: DOWNTOWNJEN

Introduction

This dish is common all over North Africa and the Middle East. I know it from Ethiopian restaurants where it is normally eaten with injera bread (a crepe-like bread made with tef flour). However it is also great over rice or with crusty French bread or even by itself. This dish is common all over North Africa and the Middle East.

Ingredients

    5 cups stringbeans, cut in half and ends removed
    2 normal-large onions, diced
    2 cloves garlic, diced
    half a bag of baby carrots
    16-oz can stewed tomatoes, crushed (squish in your fists)
    olive oil
    1 cup water
    1-2 tsp salt
    berbere to taste (2 tbsp or 3tbsp if you like it really hot)

Directions

Cook your garlic and onions in oil over medium heat until the onions are translucent; then add your string beans. Get them coated in oil and saute until they turn bright green, and add the rest of your ingredients (start out with a teaspoon of berbere, add more as you go). bring the mixture up to a boil, and basically, let it stew and reduce. if you boil off the liquid before the carrots and string beans are nice and soft, add extra water; if it starts to burn, add a little more oil. it takes a LONG time to cook down, but requires pretty much no monitoring, so this is a good one to put on the stove right when you get home.

The mixture is done when the liquid is pretty much gone, the onions and tomatoes are undetectable in a sort of red sauce, the green beans are soft and way way smaller than they were, and the carrots can be cut with a spoon. it looks like nothing on earth, but tastes SO good!

I recommend eating it with crusty bread.
