Menemen Turkish-Style Scrambled Eggs

  • 1 medium sized onion, diced
  • 2 medium sized red tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 2 green peppers, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced (optional)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons green onions, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (or any other vegetable oil)
  • 1 clove garlic, diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • pinch of freshly ground black pepper to taste image placeholder

In a big pre-heated skillet, sauté onions in olive oil until tender.

Add the garlic, peppers, and tomatoes and cook for about 4-5 minutes or until tomatoes become soft and tender.

Add the green onions and paprika. Stir for just about a minute.

Meanwhile, beat the eggs lightly with salt and some freshly ground black pepper. Pour the beaten eggs all over the mixture in the pan. Stir until eggs are slightly scrambled and cooked.

Serve with slices of ekmek, a traditional Turkish bread or with pide, a Middle Eastern flatbread and a cup or hot Turkish tea.
