Menemen lezzetli

‘Menemen is delicious’

One of the particularly interesting breakfast recipes in Hairy Dieters: Fast Food is menemen, a sort of Turkish egg dish which essentially involves ‘scrambling’ eggs in a well-sautéed mixture of tomato, onion and bell peppers. (For the recipe, go to this link and click through to the second search result)

It tasted pretty good, but the texture worried me a little — I’m not a huge fan of the effect of the acidity of tomato juice on still-cooking eggs; I find the resulting ‘sponginess’ to have a rather odd mouth-feel.

I’d make this recipe again, for sure, but most likely I’d scramble the eggs separately, serve them on top of bread to soak up the juices and pour the vegetable mixture over the top — yum!
