On today’s menu we have another Greek-Cypriot traditional vegan dish! The Mediterranean cuisine is essentially plant-based, so my mom made sure that there always were lots of veggies on the table!

Making this dish a few days earlier, brought back irreplaceable memories from my childhood. The wonderful smells of herbs and spices, the image of the whole family gathered around the table for a wholesome meal.

Hopefully this will be a dish that you can make for your children one day to show them how delicious it can be to include legumes and vegetables in their diet!

Ingredients (4 servings):

  • ½ kg fresh green peas
  •  ¼ cup olive oil
  • Water
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • ½ cup tomato puree (alternatively you can use fresh tomatoes!)
  • 2 thinly sliced carrots
  • 2 potatoes cut into small pieces (optional)
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Execution:

  • Boil some water in a cooking pan over a stove
  • Add the peas, olive oil and vegetable stock to the pan. Allow the peas to boil until thoroughly cooked. This should take around 20-25 minutes
  • Add the tomato puree, sliced carrots and potatoes. Stir well and allow the mixture to boil for another 10-15 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper
