A Taste of Greece – Episode 4 Recipe

Aginares Me Araka: Peas & Artichoke Stew

Everyone loves a hearty stew! This easy to prepare meal is a favourite on cool nights, when a warm, full flavoured dish is just what you need to warm up. It’s also quite healthy, using loads of fresh vegetables.

Ingredients 

1 kilo peas
½ kilo artichokes
5-6 potatoes
2 carrots
4 fresh tomatoes
1 big shallot chopped
Olive oil
A grip of fresh dill
Salt & pepper

Method 

Put the peas and chopped onion in a pot and cover with water and olive oil. Pre-cook for 15 minutes. In the meantime, chop the carrots and cut the potatoes in pieces.

Put the peas in an oven pan, add the potatoes, carrots and artichokes. Cut the fresh tomatoes and add them on top. Add salt and because it is fresh tomato you will add a little bit of sugar on top.

Cook in the oven for one hour to an hour and 1/2 at about 180 degrees.
