This Georgian dish, called lobio (bean dish), is typically served cool, but with its buttery scrambled eggs and tender green beans, it's equally delicious hot. It's great as part of a family-style menu and also makes an unusually tasty, light main course.

  1. 1 pound green beans, cut into 2-inch pieces
  2. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  3. 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  4. 1 small onion, finely chopped
  5. 5 large eggs, lightly beaten
  6. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  7. 1 cup chopped cilantro, plus small sprigs for garnish
  8. 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  9. 1 garlic clove, minced
  10. 1 small jalapeño, seeded and minced
  11. 1 small red chile, seeded and minced
  12. 1/2 teaspoon dill seeds
  1. In a large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the green beans until tender, 6 minutes. Drain and let cool. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, melt the butter in the oil. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 6 minutes. Add the eggs and season with salt and pepper. Cook over moderate heat, stirring, until the eggs are scrambled, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs to the beans.
  3. Stir in the chopped cilantro, walnuts, garlic, jalapeño, red chile and dill seeds. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with cilantro sprigs just before serving.
Make Ahead The green lobio can be refrigerated for up to 4 hours.
