This recipe has a most romantic source. A few years ago my husband and I chartered a small gulet to explore the coast of Turkey. Our captain, cook and guide was Mehmet. We moved around the Gulf of Fethiye, looking at ruins and swimming by day, mooring each night in a different place. One night, Mehmet cooked these beans and gave me the recipe. I'm very happy that I can share it with you.
