Hello everyone,

I know it has been very long that I haven't post a new recipe here. I am not going to find excuses about that. But I know that I am a little bit lazy ;-)

Today I have a very easy but very tasty recipe for you. It goes well with grills in summer. Or that is the way we like ;-) Whenever we barbeku or go to picnic I try to make this salad. It is originally hot but I do not use hot pepper.

It is so flexible to make additions according to your preference. I am just giving you basic items and rest is your imagination.


4 medium ripe tomatoes
2 medium onion
4 gloves of garlic
1 tbs pepper paste
1 tbs tomato paste
1/2 green bell pepper ( it is hard to find mild pepper here)
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 bunch of parsley
Juice of 2 lemons (it depends on your taste actually)
2 tbs olive oil
Salt and chilli pepper

I first grate tomatoes and than chop all onions,garlic,peppers and parsley. This is the key part. If you use a blender or a chopper it will not have the same taste. If you have a sharp knife and a cutting board it is not difficult and it is not time consuming. Than I add tomato and pepper past with spices. The amount you use might be different. So feel free to add more or less spices or herbs. You will have enough ezme for 3-4 families with that amount of ingredients.

I hope you enjoy your ezme if you give a try!

Happy Birthday!

It has been a while that I couldn't write here. After coal mine explosion in Soma Turkey I felt terrible. I didn't want to do anything, even working. Life is too short. And we should know how valuable a single breath.
Finally I have decided to continue writing. There are things that we can change but also there are things that we can not change. I found that having hope helps you to overcome a disaster.
I do not have a recipe today. It is my 32nd birthday today.
I wish to myself a better world in my new year!
