Bean Salad (Fasulye) For Hazel


Serves: 4

  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Clove Garlic, crushed
  • 1 Kg Flat Beans, cut to 5 cm
  • 2 teaspoons Tomato Puree
  • 4 Medium Tomatoes, skinned and diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • Black Pepper, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • Water

Preparation Method

Heat the oil in a saucepan then add the onion and garlic, cook until the onion becomes clear. Add the beans, tomato puree and the skinned and diced tomatoes; use fresh tomatoes, not tinned. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally! Pour in enough water to completely cover the beans, then add the salt, pepper and sugar. Bring to the boil, put the lid on the pan and simmer for 30 minutes.


This bean salad is best eaten warm and served with that fresh crusty French bread from Waitrose. We like to eat it in the Summer with barbecued chicken and rice – yum yum :)
