Turkish Scrambled Eggs (Menemen)

9 ingredients
2-4 servings
Also known as Italian frying peppers, Cubanelle peppers are large and blocky. They are light green in appearance and they mature red. The thin walls of this pepper make it an excellent choice for frying. This pepper is not hot. Recipe from Binnurs Turkish Cookbook, April 2005. Update: due to reviews I have added to seed the tomatoes and squeeze slightly to remove excess juice.
