Turkish Mixed Bean Soup, also known as ‘kuru fasulye çorbası’ in Turkish, is a hearty and nutritious soup made with a variety of beans, vegetables, and seasonings. The beans used in the soup can include white beans, red beans, black beans, or a combination of these. The vegetables used are typically onion, garlic, carrot, and tomato, with some recipes also adding peppers or potatoes.
To make the soup, the beans are first soaked overnight, then boiled until they are tender. Meanwhile, the vegetables are sautéed in a pot with some olive oil, before the beans are added along with some tomato paste and spices such as cumin, paprika, and red pepper flakes. The mixture is then simmered for a while to allow the flavors to blend together.
