White Beans Plaki

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sackville

A delicious Turkish dish that has turned many a bean-hater into a bean-lover in my house. Serve as part of a Turkish meze or with meat such as a nice steak, in place of potatoes.

I really enjoyed this meal. I prepered it as described, but I replaced the celery stalk with diced celery root (about 150 g) I hat to use. I placed it the the oven (70°C) until all members of my family were at home and ready to start. Good dish to be prepared in advance.<br/>It was really delicious, tasty and suoer easy.
