This is one of the few vegetarian/vegan recipes the Turkish kitchen can offer! Nevertheless it is a really delicious dish many people do not know about. Thinking about Turkish food you generally associate it with kebab, döner and a lot of meat. Here is proof that is CAN BE healthy and vegetarian sometimes.
I know that real Turkish people make this dish a bit differently than us Arabic Turks but I prefer the Arabic way myself. My mum shared the recipe with me before I moved out at the age of 19 and since then this has been one of my favorite recipes!
That’s why I am more than happy to share my super quick and yummy dish with the world. If you are running out of ideas for a very healthy and vegan dish add this to your recipes book.
Here is my short instruction:
Again I do not state specific amounts as I go by feeling…
1. Cut green beans
2. Put a bit of oil in a pan
3. Add 3-4 garlic cloves, cut in half
4. Add the beans
5. Cut 3 small tomatoes, cut in small cubes
6. Add a bit of “salça” (turkish tomato paste)
7. Add water
8. Salt and pepper
9. Let it boil until the beans become soft.
