    Eismeer's Note:

    This is a styrian version (Styria, Province of Austria) of a hearty, simple and vegan Greek Bean dish, that tastes heavenly and uses "Käferbohnen" (Scarlet runner beans) instead of white giant beans. If you can't get hold of Scarlet Runner Beans use giant beans instead. The original recipe calls for about 200ml olive oil, i cut that lavish amount in half, and still find it's enough oil left :). Prep.time comes without beansoaking time!

      This dish is absolutely delicious. I made as written but skipped the baking part, because the flavor and texture was wonderful once I finished sauteing/stir frying for about 10 minutes over medium/high heat. Thanks for posting, this is a keeper and will be made again. Made for Spring 2012 PAC.
