Turkish one-pan eggs & peppers (Menemen)

Menemen is a traditional Turkish dish that’s healthy and brilliant for brunch, lunch or supper. Serve with warm pitta bread for scooping up the delicious sauce and runny egg yolks

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 1 red or green pepper, halved deseeded and sliced
  • 1-2 red chillies, deseeded and sliced
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1-2 tsp caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • small bunch parsley, roughly chopped
  • 6 tbsp thick, creamy yogurt
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan. Stir in the onions, pepper and chillies. Cook until they begin to soften. Add the tomatoes and sugar, mixing well. Cook until the liquid has reduced, season.

  • STEP 2

    Using a wooden spoon, create 4 pockets in the tomato mixture and crack the eggs into them. Cover the pan and cook the eggs over a low heat until just set.

  • STEP 3

    Beat the yogurt with the garlic and season. Sprinkle the menemen with parsley and serve from the frying pan with a dollop of the garlic-flavoured yogurt.
