One of the most popular is loubieh b zeit, literally “green beans in oil,” a traditional Lebanese mezze in which romano beans are braised until tender with tomatoes in olive oil. It’s traditionally served at room temperature, but can also be enjoyed warm, as a side dish. Green beans or fava beans can be substituted for the Romano beans.
