Butter Beans (Kuru Fasulye)

White Beans is a very traditional and common dish in Turkey, especially when it is served with pilaf and pickles. Turkish people just love this dish.

2 cups white/butter beans
2 onions, chopped
2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 dried red pepper/green pepper, chopped
½ tsp baking soda (optional)
¼ tsp chili red pepper flakes (optional)
1 tsp salt to taste

Wash white beans, place them in a pot and cover with water (approximately 1 inch above the beans). Leave them in water overnight or for at least 12 hours. The next day, cook them with the same water till beans get soft over low heat. You could add baking soda to have softer beans quicker. When they are soft, add 1 tsp of salt.
In another pot, sauté onions with oil for 2-3 minutes over medium heat. Stir in peppers and tomato paste. Saute for 2-3 minutes and add chili red pepper flakes (optional). Transfer the cooked white beans over them. Simmer for 10-15 minutes over low heat.
Serve White Beans, with pilaf or over pilaf. Also cacik and pickled vegetables are good to go with this recipe.
P.S: You can also use 2 cans of white beans and skip the instructions given in the first paragraph, but it may not be as delicious as the one with dried beans. Also, you can use or mix kidney beans, black beans or pinto beans for this recipe.

***This is a vegetarian recipe.
