Saute the onion with olive oil for 3-4 minutes in a pan. Add all the ingredients except the chicken stock. Stir, cover the lid and cook for about 20 minutes over low heat.
Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil, then turn up the heat to medium-low. Cook another 20 minutes until the flat green beans fork tender.
Sprinkle some chopped parsley on top and serve with Bread Slices with Garlic, and Kashar cheese or Mozzarella cheese.
Bread Slices with Garlic and Kashar Cheese
Slice a baton bread. Spread butter with garlic on top. Arrange Kashar or Mozzarella cheese slices on top and sprinkle some Cayenne pepper.
