Being one of the oldest flavours of Aegean eating diet, the horse bean was grown by our ancasters also by the old Greeks and Romans. They were used to make bread or cake with the beans.
Just to refresh our minds, here is a pie with horse bean, among our forgotten treasures.
Wash the horse beans and take the beans out. These days the horse beans are mature enough to be shelled.
Saute the chopped onion with hazelnut oil in the pressure cooker. Place the shelled horse beans,1/2 cup water, sugar and salt. Cook 20 minutes until tender. Put boiled horse beans in a food processor, add lemon juice and mix until smooth.
Beat the eggs in a bowl. Add white cheese, bread crumble, flour, soda, pepper, chopped dill and leek. Mix until the consistency is like a bit batter.
Put the mixture into a greased fluted pie tin. Sprinkle sesame seeds and grated kaşar cheese on top. Bake in a preheated oven at 18o°C until done for 45 minutes.
