Recipe: Turkish white bean salad with Za’atar ♪

IMG_2461
The recipe itself is not difficult to make it, but it was for me. On May 5th. I prepared Lombia from Morocco. I used half of the beans for Lombia and the other half for this salad. In Turkish, white bean salad is Beyaz Fasulye Salatasi and this was confirmed by a person from Birecik.
The reason why I had difficulties with the recipe was, first: I am not very familiar with the local ingredients, second: It took me two days to finally have this salad. You know how it is, when you have to soak in water, those beans…Then, for some odd reason, I could not understand the mix of Za’atar and Sumac. The description of the two are below. I could not locate Sumac at the store, so this is a substitute. Za’atar is a mix of herbs, like thyme, oregano, sesame seeds and others with Sumac. This is used in Middle Eastern cuisine.
Lemon juice
olive oil
Za’atar: 1 tsp thyme, 1 or 2 TBSP sesame seeds and 1 tsp of Sumac
(Sumac: Lemon zest and salt)
parsley
cilantro
1. start making your Za’atar., then add Sumac to your Za’atar.
2. add 1. to your white beans.
We eat just this for dinner.
Very healthy!
