This recipe has a most romantic source. A few years ago my husband and I chartered a small gulet to explore the coast of Turkey. Our captain, cook and guide was Mehmet. We moved around the Gulf of Fethiye, looking at ruins and swimming by day, mooring each night in a different place. One night, Mehmet cooked these beans and gave me the recipe. I'm very happy that I can share it with you.
This is one of my mother's favorite recipes. It could be served with any type of meal, but we like to have it with pork and barbecue. The use of a food processor will make preparation easy in shredding the cabbage.
This is an easy stir-fried vegetable dish that can be prepared ahead. My DH and I love its flavor and the cayenne pepper gives it a nice "kick"! Originally from the Time-Life Foods of the World Series, The Cooking of China.
I have tried several different versions of this recipe, but this is my favorite. I think the caraway and celery seed is what makes the difference. The recipe is from Taste of Home magazine and is credited to Karen Gorman.
