(Recipe in English is below. Arapsaçli kuru fasülye tarifi için burayi tiklayin)

Quite easy. Quite tasty. Quite healthy as well! 

bundel of fennel I bought from the bazaar

Ingredients (serves 4 – 5)
300 – 400 gr beans, soak them in water the night before. 
1 bundle of fennel foliage, the hard and old stalks and leaves cleaned, cut into 2 – 3 

fennel, cleaned

1 big onion, cubed
2 tomatos, peeled and cubed
1 spoon of tomato paste (optional)
1 spoon of olive oil (you can use more if you like)
2.5 – 3 cups of warm water
  1. Drain the beans and boil them until they are soft. I boiled the beans for half an hour but I think the beans I had were a bit old; therefore some of them came apart and some were still not that soft.
  2. Warm the olive oil in a pan and saute the onions on warm heat.
  3. Add the tomatoes that you cubed and saute for five minutes more.
  4. Add the warm water, close the lid and let the water boil.
  5. When the water boils, add the fennel foliage and cook for 5 minutes more.
  6. Add the beans and the salt ; cook for 15 minutes more.
