Jewish (?) Greenbean/onion 'spread'??

Ok, I don't expect too many responses but I once had this dip/spread that was made of greenbeans and onions. The greenbeans were delicate and thin and cooked til falling apart and splitting, mixed in with lots of caramalized julienned onion and perhaps schmaltz (jewish rendered chicken fat) was like the binding agent. It was not a creamy dip, we just spread it on thin crackers. It was just a bit warmer than room temp. I had it at a party about 10 yrs ago and the guy that brought it said he made it from his grandma's recipe, he was jewish and it just seemed like it might be an old jewish recipe. I love caranelized onions and I could NOT stip eating it. I think her served it in a little glass baking dish, that maybe he baked it in?
I've never seen it again . . . had anybody else?

Of course, as with the rice bread I searched for on this board, the person purveying the treat always acts like, "whaddaya mean you never had this before?" --that must be the prelude to never seeing it again.
