Menemen Preparation:

First of all, let’s prepare the ingredients. Pointed peppers and tomatoes are finely chopped into cubes. In real menemen, we chop the ingredients finely because we believe that chopping the ingredients finely makes the bread dipping stage more delicious. Add the vegetable oil to the slightly heated pan, then add the green peppers and roast them. When the peppers soften and brown, add the finely chopped tomatoes on them. Finely chopping the tomatoes ensures that the juice mixes well with the menemeni and adds flavor to its flavor. Roast for another 10 minutes with the tomatoes. Meanwhile, we beat the eggs in another bowl. While beating, add the salt of the menemen to the eggs. Finally, add the beaten eggs to the identical peppers and tomatoes. After mixing the eggs with the peppers and tomatoes so that the peppers and tomatoes are identical, we leave it to cook over low heat for about 10 minutes. We serve it with warm, fresh loaf bread and feta cheese.
