Classic one-pan Turkish egg dish menemen, which is scrambled eggs with tomatoes and green peppers.
Heat olive oil in a pan.
Cook chopped peppers in it for 2-3 minutes.
Add in tomatoes.
Season with salt and paprika and cook over medium low heat until tomatoes are tender, stirring occasionally. Now reduce the heat a bit.
There are two options after this step:
First option: In a bowl, beat the eggs and pour it all over the tomatoes. Give it a gentle stir so that the beaten eggs can spread everywhere. Cook it uncovered until the eggs are set. It takes no longer than 3-5 minutes. Don’t overcook.
Second option: Using a spoon, make rooms for each egg and break eggs into those hollows. Let it simmer uncovered until the eggs are slightly cooked for 8-10 minutes. Help egg whites cook well with a spoon. If you like the yolks hard, cook longer.
Sprinkle black pepper and red pepper flakes over it. Garnish with herbs like parsley or chopped green onions and serve.
Serve it with your favorite crusty bread.
