A friend from istanbul made this for us... many years ago. Yemek is Turkish for meal. This isn't actually soup, it's a sort of potato stew with poached eggs.
  • 6 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks* of celery, trimmed and chopped
  • 1 liter bouillon
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 6 eggs
  1. Saute the onions and celery in the oil.
  2. Add the bouillon, tomatoes and potatoes.
  3. Bring to a boil, simmer 15 minutes or until potatoes are done.
  4. Turn heat to low, then crack the eggs in carefully, spacing so that they do not run together.
  5. Poach eggs until are done, a couple minutes. Do not stir!
  6. Place potato soup and 1 egg into each bowl.
  7. Some nice fresh bread and salad would be perfect with this!
  8. Afiyet olsun!
  9. That means bon appetit!
* 1 piece of celery is 1 stalk = 1 rib of celery broken off the head of celery. OK?
