I will give the recipe of my mother, it took me ages to understand why hers was so special.
After following her step by step I know now it is the touch of her hand. I hope you will like this one.
1 kg fresh green beans
2 spoon fulls of sugar
1 bunch of chopped green onions
1 grated tomato
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/2 cup water ( this is tricky, if the green beans are juicy you might have to add less water, my suggestion is to start with small amounts and add slowly if necessary )
pinch of salt and black pepper
Peel the beans as on the picture below, on both sides.
It will stay in the fridge for 3 to 5 days. It will taste the best the day after cooking.
Afiyet olsun, bon apetite
