This white bean salad recipe makes a perfect accompaniment to köfte but is also a tasty addition to your meze table.
Ingredients
  • 1 mug dried white beans (or 1 large tin)
  • 2 free range eggs, hard boiled and peeled and cut into quarters
  • 1 onion peeled and cut into half moons
  • 1 red pepper, roughly chopped
  • ½ bunch flat leaf parsley
For The Sauce
  • ½ mug vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp tahini
Instructions
  1. If using dried beans, steep them overnight in water, first.
  2. The following day, boil them in water for around 40-50 mins. Don't allow them to go completely soft as they'll continue to cook when you remove them from the heat.
  3. If you are using tinned beans, drain the brine and then give them a good rinse to remove the flavour of the brine.
  4. Add your beans to a large serving bowl.
  5. Now add the onion, pepper and chopped parsley and mix together, carefully.
  6. In a mug, mix your vinegar, oil and tahini and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Do a taste test and add more tahini or more vinegar if you like.
  8. Pour over your bean salad and mix together.
  9. Now decorate your piyaz with your hard boiled eggs.
  10. You can garnish with cherry tomato if you like.
Notes
There is no cook time on this piyaz recipe. Obviously, if you are using dried beans, add the 40 minutes cooking time.
Calories are approximate, depending on how much tahini and oil you use.
Make more dressing if you prefer a more soup-like piyaz.
