Fried Green Beans with Eggs

(Yumurtalı Fasulye Kızartması - Black Sea Region)

Fried Green Beans with Eggs
250g flat green beans, trimmed, cut in medium-sized chunks
4-5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3-4 tbsp yellow corn meal
2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 tsp crushed red pepper (red pepper flakes)

Boil the green beans for about 20 minutes, drain. Sauté them with olive oil and salt for about 10 minutes at medium heat. Stir occasionally, don't let them burn. Sprinkle the corn meal over the beans, stir. Add the beaten eggs. Flip the omelette over when the first side is done.

Season with some crushed pepper. Serve as a light lunch with Turkish bread and your choice of salad.

Dear Binnur, what's the difference btween kızartma and kavurma? I ve been following your blog for some time, and I couldnt spot a difference.great blog, greetings

Kizartma means to fry in hot oil.
Kavurma means to cook in the pot first with its own juice (some hot water can be added) then fry with its own fat:)
Take care,

We have a very simmilar version in Mexico. Ours is more like a frittata, with onions and no corn meal.
I'll definitely try yours@
