Turkish Braised Beans with Potatoes and Carrots

Turkish barbunya pilaki is a summertime dish of cranberry beans (also known as borlotti or Roman beans) simmered simply in olive oil with a few aromatics and vegetables. Fresh beans are preferred, but they’re highly seasonal and not widely available in the U.S., so we use dried cranberry beans and we cook them in an Instant Pot using either the pressure cooker or slow cooker function. Barbunya pilaki typically is served at room temperature, or even chilled, as part of a meze spread. We think the beans also are delicious warm as a light vegetarian main with bread alongside or as an accompaniment to roasts and kebabs.

Tip

Don’t skip the step of soaking the beans. Soaking helps the beans cook evenly and fully tenderize. It’s especially important if using the Instant Pot’s slow cooker function.
