This is a Greek green-bean recipe. The fennel seeds in the recipe impart a sort of licorice-like taste, so if you don't like licorice you might want to omit these. I've made it both with and without and it still tastes good, though different, without the seeds. A good side dish to serve with moussaka.
- Sauté the onion in butter until golden brown.
- Add the beans to the onion and sauté, stirring constantly, until the beans turn a bright green.
- Add the garlic through salt and pepper.
- Simmer 30 minutes, or until beans are tender.
