This is a simple yet delicious vegan recipe, but it only becomes vegetarian if you top it with Feta cheese.

2 cups of frozen peas (defrosted)

2 fresh carrots chopped into small chunky pieces

2 medium sized potatoes peeled and chopped

1 medium sized onion

A handful of fresh or dried dill



1 carton of passata

2 Tbsp olive oil

Half a cup of water

Optional: Feta cheese as a topping

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 50-60 minutes

Serves: 6 people


Step. 1: Drizzle some olive oil in a large sauce pan on a low heat. Chop the onion into small pieces and add it to the saucepan along with the peas. Stir and let it cook for 5 minutes.

Step. 2: Add the potatoes, carrots, dill, passata, water and the rest of the olive oil into the pan. Season with salt and pepper and stir. Let it simmer on a low heat, stirring occasionally.

Tip: You will notice that once the sauce becomes a dark orange colour and the potatoes have softened, it is then ready.
