Menemen

Sunday is brunch day so along with many other things I thought I would make this typically Turkish egg dish. The recipe is extremely straightforward, only requires a few ingredients and is great for breakfast, lunch or brunch.

Ingredients:

  • 1 green bell pepper (typically the dish requires banana peppers but these can be hard to find in the UK so I often use bell peppers)
  • 15-20 baby plum tomatoes
  • 4 eggs
  • Olive oil
  • Salt to to taste
  • Cayenne Pepper (optional)

Method:

  1. Finely cut the green bell pepper and sauté with some olive oil in a frying pan on a medium heat until softened and thoroughly cooked.
  2. Finely chop the tomatoes and add to the peppers, continue cooking until the tomatoes have softened and released their water.
  3. Crack the four eggs directly into the mixture and scramble them with the tomatoes and peppers. Add some salt while scrambling.
  4. If you want some heat sprinkle some Cayenne Pepper on top before serving.
