Turkish Runner Beans - Taze Fasulye


500g runner beans, trimmed and cut into 3cm pieces

75ml olive oil

1 onion, diced

3 cloves of garlic, minced 

1 tsp pul biber (Aleppo pepper)

1 can chopped tomatoes

250g cherry tomatoes, halved

100ml water

1 tsp caster sugar

1 lemon, juiced


150g feta, crumbled to serve

Extra virgin olive oil 



  1. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat with 1 tbsp of olive oil. Add the onion with a pinch of salt and cook until softened. Add the garlic and pul biber and fry for a minute before adding the chopped tomatoes, fresh tomatoes and runner beans.


2. Pour over the remaining olive oil, water and sugar and bring to a simmer. Cover with a lid and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally until the beans are cooked through and tomatoes have broken down.


3. Taste to season with salt, pepper and the lemon juice. Leave to cool completely to absorb the flavours. Serve with crumbled feta and an extra drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
