Ingredients

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a medium sized pot.
  • Sauté onions until soft. Add carrots and potatoes and sauté 3-4 minutes more.
  • Add peas and heat and mix until all peas are covered in the olive oil.
  • Add the tomato, dill, pepper and a half teaspoon salt. Add enough hot water so that the peas are covered just a bit (about ¼ cup).
  • Mix well and bring to a boil. Then lower heat and simmer for 30 minutes, until peas are soft and water is gone-they should only be left with the olive oil.
  • Serve at room temperature with feta and bread. Add salt as needed.
