Turkish Breakfast

This idea for a Turkish breakfast is more of a concept than a recipe, but trust us – when you’re gearing up for a sweltering day, the last thing you need is a hot breakfast. Think like a Mediterranean and start with a platter of perfect eggs, juicy vitamin C-rich tomatoes and cool cucumbers.

  • 2 eggs, boiled medium, peeled and halved
  • 1 tomato, cut into wedges
  • ½ cucumber, sliced
  • 2 oz. slice feta cheese
  • A few olives
  • 1 pita bread, warmed and cut into quarters
  • Flaky salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Pinch of Aleppo pepper or dried chile flake
  • Olive oil

Arrange eggs, tomato wedges, cucumber, feta and olives on a large platter. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground pepper and drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle Aleppo pepper over everything. Serve with pita wedges.
