In Turkey, there are a dizzying amount of vegetable dishes on offer. In cities like Istanbul, there are countless cafeteria style restaurants with endless options of vegetables, meats and sweets, ready for you to pick and mix your favourite flavours. One such dish is a simple vegetable casserole of beans and tomatoes, zeytinyağlı fasulye. Often baked, this dish is quite a thin tomato sauce that covers very soft green beans - this is a delicious way to eat beans incidentally! My recipe is a fresher, tangy take with a little Turkish spice thrown in for good measure. It's the perfect dish to serve alongside other Turkish dishes or as a small plate mezze.
