Turkish Green Bean Recipe

This vegan Turkish green bean recipe is one of my favourite vegan and vegetarian stew recipes.

Last year I was at a Turkish restaurant in Berlin, Germany and saw this runner bean recipe on the menu. As I love the stews of the Turkish cuisine, I had to try this one. Since that day, this dish has been one of my favourite vegan und vegetarian stew recipes. It’s very easy to make and a super delicious summer recipe. If you follow the steps described below, I assure you that you will like it.
