Bulgarian recipe: Mish mash

This is my first recipe post on this blog. Mish mash is a traditional Bulgarian vegetarian dish that is very easy to prepare. The only problem that you might have is to find something similar to the white cheese found in Bulgaria and very commonly used in food here. The Bulgarian white cheese looks like normal feta cheese but taste different. The recipe should also work with feta cheese or you can skip the cheese.

Mish mash (2-3 portions)

3 tomatoes
3 red peppers
1 yellow onion
3 eggs
150 gram white cheese
parsley
oil
salt & pepper

Cut the tomatoes, red peppers, onion, cheese and parsley into eatable size pieces (don’t mix it). Heat the oil in a pan and throw in the chopped onion. After some minute, add the peppers. Stir. Again after some minute, also add the tomatoes. Stir. Cook for 4 minutes and then add the cheese and eggs. Stir. Cook for 3 more minutes (don’t make the eggs to dry) and finally add parsley, salt & pepper on top of the dish. Take the pan off the heat and wait for a short while before serving.

For the Turkish version of this recipe (Menemen), add some chopped spicy salami and hot spices.
