Ingredients

Olive Oil

2 tablespoons

Paprika

1 teaspoons, level, smoked

Oregano, Dried

½ teaspoons, level

Mint, Fresh

¼ teaspoons, dried

Onion(s)

1 large, finely diced

Green Pepper(s)

WW Soft Malted Danish Bread

Instructions

  1. Put the oil in a nonstick frying pan and set over a low heat until warm, but not hot. Add the paprika, oregano, mint, onion and the deseeded and finely diced green pepper, and season to taste. Cook, stirring often, for 8-10 minutes until the vegetables are soft.
  2. Add the tomatoes and continue to cook, stirring often, for 6-8 minutes until the tomatoes start to break down and the mixture becomes darker in colour. Remove half of the mixture and set aside.
  3. Add the eggs to the pan and season to taste. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, folding the mixture with a silicone spatula, until the eggs are just barely set.
  4. Remove from the heat, gently fold in the reserved vegetable mixture and garnish with the parsley. Toast the bread and serve with the eggs.

Notes

This delicious breakfast dish is a staple in Turkey. It should be cooked gently over a low heat to ensure soft, velvety eggs.
