Menemen - Eggs, Tomatoes and Peppers
A lovely dish with a marvellous name and just perfect for summer. It’s fast and easy to prepare and extremely nutritious. It’s a favourite for breakfasts in Turkey, but it also goes down scrummily well as a bright and tasty lunch or a quick supper. If you have it at a Turkish restaurant it comes served in individual metal dishes, sizzling furiously and nicely firmed around the edges of the pan whilst tender and deliciously moist in the middle. Ingredients (serves 2)
3medium/large tomatoes, peeled and chopped into small chunks
2-3 long green peppers cut into small chunks (I prefer sweet ones)
1 finely sliced white onions
Half a cup of olive oil or butter
Salt and pepper to taste( red Paprika if you like)
Beat the eggs in a bowl and add a little salt and pepper
Warm the olive oil or melt the butter in a large pan, then lightly fry the onions and peppers without browning. After about 2 minutes add the chopped tomatoes. Cook the mixture until all the veggies are really nice and soft (around 7-8 minutes), and the juice has been reduced by about half.
Pour on the eggs and stir continually until it begins to firm.The result should be firm and juicy, not dry.
Season with salt and pepper.
You can serve with fresh bread and hot tea ☺️Bon Appetit
Elbette yabancılara yaptığım menemen tarifini Türk arkadaşlarıma yinelemek olmaz,zaten herkesin benden daha iyi bildiğine eminim. ☺️🙏
Chicken kofte in a tomato sauce with chopped courgettes and sliced mushrooms. These kofte were juicy, filled with beautiful flavours and then the tomato sauce completes the dish.
Will update ingredients, recipe and stages in their next post.
Hope you're all having a fab Friday, we've just seen and heard thunder, lightening and torrential rain; expecting more of it too😠
