Turkish Style Navy Beans
This is one of my exprerimental recipes inspired by a national Turkish dish "Kuru Fasulye" (White Beans)
1 can of navy beans
1 can of diced tomato or 3 tomatoes, grated
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
3 banana peppers, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp tomato or pepper paste
salt & black pepper
1 tsp dried mint (or fresh)
-Stir onions and garlic with oil for a couple of minutes
-Add green peppers and keep stirring for 2-3 minutes
-Then add tomato paste and cook for 2 more minutes
-Once both peppers and the paste are cooked, add the diced tomato or grated fresh tomatoes, and bring to a boil on medium heat.
-Let it boil for 5 minutes and add navy beans, salt, black pepper, and mint (if you don't like mint, you can replace mint with parsley).
-Add 1/3 cup of hot water and cook for 20 minutes.
