This is one of my favorite meals thus far. It shares a lot of similarities with Israel's Shakshouka, but it's superior in my opinion because it's not as strong. Shakshouka is heavier on the garlic, onion, tomato and salt (which are all great things), but it's better suited for a dinner than a relaxed breakfast. Menemen, on the other hand, is filled with delicious light flavors which can calmly fill the belly on mostly vegetables.

If you have the time this weekend, I suggest throwing this together. It's really easy to make. The photo recipe below is mean for three people and it requires:

  • 1 loaf of bread
  • 3 eggs
  • some green pepper thingamabobbers
  • cheese (whatever you want)
  • sumac
  • oregano
  • hot pepper powder
