    I enjoy green beans but the cumen gave them a very different flavor. I thouroughly enjoyed the change. I normally cook it with onions mushrooms some diced tomatoes, and pepper with olive oil and lemon juice - 11/6/09

    I love the flavor of this dish. I typically use fresh green beans and just modify the cook time. I like the addition of the lemon juice. - 3/15/07
