Kidney Bean Pilaki / Barbunya Pilaki (6 Portions)
Barbunya pilaki is a very traditional meze dish originating from the ancient inns of the Middle Eastern peninsula. It became very popular for Turkish cuisine during the reign of the Ottoman Empire as it was highly coveted by many Padishahs and government officials as well as the townsfolk. The meze is prepared by cooking barbunya type beans to a certain degree along with tomato sauce, exotic spices, and virgin olive oil. The beans are then garnished with fresh herbs, preferably parsley, and served cold with slices of fresh lemons. You will love this meze for any occasion with your friends and family. On a plus note, barbunya pilaki is totally vegetarian!
