Menemen Eggs for breakfast

Turkish breakfasts are becoming more and more popular in recent years. Going out for a Sunday breakfast in Bodrum, became a very trendy thing to do with the family. There are numbers of very authentic places to go in the peninsula you just need to choose one. We love to eat varieties of cheeses, different types of olives veggies, fruits, boreks and herbs and a good Turkish tea on the side. A very southern breakfast egg often served on Sunday breakfasts is Menemen, how it is prepared is always an issue. Here is mine photo credit goes to Ms. Emma Teruya!

Ingredients ;
4 -5 tomatoes
1 bunch of spring onions
1/2 bunch of parsley
2-3 leaves of basil
2 tablespoons of early harvest olive oil
4 eggs
salt and black pepper to taste

Directions ;
Grate the tomatoes to make a puree, chop the onions, basil and parsley fine. Heat the olive oil in a pan, put in the onions stirfry them until soft then add tomato puree and the herbs leave a small amount to decorate. Cook for about 10 minutes. Whip the eggs and add them slowly to the pan, stirring. Cook for another 5 minutes. Your Menemen will be ready to serve! If you like some spice then you should add some chili flakes with the onions to the pan.
Bon Appetite!
