I see many Cypriots, mainly elderly, buying dried beans and pulses, what do they make with them ?

Also what is the 'honeycomb log' stuff that they buy in plastic bags for ?

Also I have seen alot of strange looking vegetables, one that looks like a green turnip with a couple of leaves coming out of the side, what is it, how do I cook it ? And another one that looks like a white turnip with little bobbles on the side, begins with a k ?

Interested in Cypriot cooking and Lifestyle but books i have deal with more meat & fish recipies.

Beans, see http://www.flavoursofcyprus.com/ for some good receipes.

Green and white turnip like veg are probably kohlrabi and kolokassi.
see http://www.windowoncyprus.com/cyprus_food.htm for a good description.

All the above taste great, and the bean soup on a winters evening, with lots of olive oil, fresh tomatoes, halloumi, lounza etc is to die for Very Happy

If you are buying from a local "corner" shop, just ask the owner, I'm sure that they could tell you what and how to cook them

The "honeycomb" stuff is TRAHANAS. You can cook it with water or chicken stock to make soup, sometimes added chicken, I believe. It's bulgar wheat mixed with yogurt and then dried. It re-hydrates as you cook it. It's an acquired taste; a bit sour but more-ish if you like it.
