Loubia - Algerian green beans with Almonds

2 lb fresh green beans
6 cups water, salted
4 Tbsp peanut oil
2 clove garlic, mashed
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1/3 tsp ground cloves
2 Tbsp slivered almonds

1 Clean and trim green beans. Simmer in lightly salted water until just tender, about 30-45 minutes. Drain and put in serving dish.
2 Put remaining ingredients (except almonds) in a saucepan over medium heat and cook for two minutes, stirring constantly. Add the almonds and stir briefly to coat.
3 Pour the oil mixture over the green beans and toss gently until beans are thoroughly coated. Serve warm.
NOTE: Canned green beans are not an acceptable substitute in this recipe. Powdered garlic is probably OK.
