  • 12 quail eggs
  • 1 onion
  • 3 green onions
  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 1 cup of crimini mushrooms
  • 1 small eggplant
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 2 heirloom tomatoes
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • Chili powder
  • Urfa Biber


Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Dice 1 medium yellow onion, and 3 green onions. Chop 3 medium zucchini, 1 cup of crimini mushrooms, 1 small eggplant, 1 green bell pepper, and 2 heirloom tomatoes.

Pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the onion, zucchini mushrooms, eggplant, and bell pepper, along with the salt, chili powder, and Urfa Biber. Lay the ingredients flat on a sheet pan and roast for 20-25 minutes, tossing them at least once to ensure they cook evenly. Make sure they are tender when you remove them from the oven and set them aside. Toss with tomatoes and green onions.

Take a pan and heat up one tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Crack your quail eggs into the pan and cover it. Cook for 2 minutes, until the whites are set and the outer edges are just starting to curl up.

For serving, divide the vegetables among 2 plates and top them with the quail eggs. Season with an extra sprinkle of chili powder, if you want a little bit of extra heat.
