A simple green bean dish that has a delightful aroma and little bite. Serve hot or at room temperature.
Put olive oil and tomato paste in a pot and heat on medium-low. Sauté 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
Meanwhile, chop green beans into 2-inch sections.
Once the oil is red, add ¼ cup water, spices, green beans and garlic to the pot. Stir well and simmer for 5 minutes. Add salt, vinegar and ¾ of the parsley. Cook 2-3 minutes more. Garnish with remaining parsley.
