For 4 – 6 people you will need:
10 tomatoes or 5 beef tomatoes – grated
2 Green Turkish Peppers or 1/2 green bell pepper – finely diced
1 knob Butter
3 Beaten Eggs
1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
Chili Flakes – as desired
Salt & Pepper
Heat the butter in a frying pan and saute pepper until soft. I use those thin Turkish style peppers easily available in your local Mediterranean shop, but use one green bell pepper if you prefer.
Once peppers soften, add grated tomatoes and cover pan. Simmer until tomatoes have softened into pulp and reduced slightly. Add seasoning & herbs.
Add beaten eggs and continue to stir until egg starts to solidify in parts. Serve immediately in pan or serving dish, accompanied by lots of bread. Sometimes I add a handful of cheese to Menemen. My family-in-law often adds sucuk (beef sausage) or minced meat.
