    Every culture has their version of tomato and eggs and each time it’s just as delicious. During my recent trip to Turkey, I got to enjoy Menemen again and just had to recreate it at home for myself. Here’s how to make it!


    • 2 eggs, whisked

    • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced

    • 1 tomato, chopped into triangles

    • 1 green chili pepper, chopped thinly

    • Fresh cheese (mozzarella)

    • Green olives

    • Dill


    • Sautee onion until softened then add in chopped tomato and cook until tomato has let go of most of its juice

    • Turn the heat to low, let the pan cool for a min, then slowly add in the whisked eggs

    • Let the eggs cook until your desired consistency, then fold in the cheese, green chili peppers, and olives — season with salt and pepper

    • Take off the heat, top with more green olives, a few sprigs of dill, and serve with crunchy bread
