  1. I absolutely love greek and turkish food and have been eating and learning to creat them from scratch. The pea stew, potato pea stew and french bean are up amonst my favourites. Thanks for helping me learn.

    I lived in Slovenia near Kran for half a yr in 2019 it’s such a lovely place!

    Its fantastic that all you have the more traditional recipes of even more simpler every day dishes but just as tasty and made vegan too! 😋

    1. So glad you like them, Rachael! Thanks for your lovely comment and review 🙂 What took you to Slovenia for 6 months?

  2. I can’t believe I cooked something so delicious! There are a lot of Turkish restaurants in my neighborhood and these came out every bit as delicious! Now can make my own and control how much oil I want to put in too. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, I look forward to trying more from your website!

  3. This is one of my favorites Turkish dishes.
    Being married to a Turkish man, my mother in law has been cooking me this meal for 20 years.. I always get first servings. She makes me this meal well in advance and makes sure her freezer is always stocked full with it… I cook all my own Turkish food here in the UK and they always turn out amazing. My mother in law is amazed that an English girl can cook better than some Turkish ladies! Tried making this bean meal plenty of times but can never get it anywhere near how she make it but this comes in very very close.
    Thank you very much for sharing this recipe..
    Will surprise my mother in law and make it for her when I visit next time..

    1. Thank you for your comment, Jill! I’m glad to hear that you’re happy to serve this dish to your mother-in-law and that it comes very close to hers. It means a lot. Next time, would you mind leaving a rating with your review? Star ratings really help us and readers who are thinking of making the recipe. Thanks again! 😊

  4. Hello MV!

    I first ate this dish (or similar) almost 49 years ago whilst staying in Bebek. My husband-to-be’s mother made it and I absolutely loved it. I fell in love with all Turkish food especially Imam Bayildi. So tonight I am using your recipe and looking forward to a wonderful yummy supper!
    Best wishes.

    1. Hi Caroline, thank you for sharing! I, too, love Turkish food. It’s so flavourful and fresh. I hope this dish takes you back to that time and that you enjoy it. I’d love it if you left a review when you’ve had the chance to try it. It would be great to hear what you thought 🙂

  5. I had first eaten the beans in Pamakkule, which was made at home by a Grandmother. I was impressed by her cooking and the beans. I came back to Mumbai and tried making it but something was missing. Your recipe is great and I am making your recipe for the second time. Just adding the Turkish red masala I don’t remember the name and Turkish dried mint. It’s my favourite dish. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  6. Love this recipe! I made a few changes, though. Aside from leaving out the coconut sugar, I used vegetable broth instead of water. And, I used Tat hot pepper paste instead of tomato paste to give this simple dish a bit more spice. I added an extra dash of cayenne pepper and sliced red bell peppers as well!


    1. I’m so sorry I’m only seeing your comment now! Thanks so much for sharing, sounds delicious – especially the addition of the red bell peppers! Glad to see that you enjoyed it 🙂

  7. It honestly tasted just like I remembered it, when I ate it in Turkey a couple years ago. It was absolutely delicious! I added some lemon juice too, and some pomegranate syrup.

  8. I became a fan of you guys since last week when I first noticed your website and start reading your article that was about “an argument for wearing the same cloth everyday” and dug more deep into your website. Than I found your recipe about our “taze fasulye”… My friends are pushing me to leave the office now and head to celebrate the new year eve… Therefore, I have to keep it short 🙂 Happy New Year!

  9. Merhaba! Stumbled across this & wanted to mention that fasulye just means beans! Taze fasulye is green beans in particular 🙂 Also in my family we typically add some whole allspice. Personally I enjoy a bit of fresh lemon when it is almost done cooking. Afiyet olsun ❤
