Roasted Peas with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Peppers (Recipe)


✅ 1 medium onion diced

✅ 1 bell pepper sliced in rings

✅ ½ cup extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ 2 bay leaves

✅ 2 16 oz. bags of frozen peas(900 grams)

✅ 16 ounces crushed tomatoes or tomato puree
✅ ¾ cup sun-dried tomatoes rinsed (you may cut them in half, I left them whole)

✅ ¼ cup chopped fresh dill

✅ 3 tablespoons breadcrumbs-I used wholegrain barley

✅ Salt and Pepper


1️⃣ Preheat oven at 350 F (180 C)

2️⃣ In a pan, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and sauté the onion and bell pepper for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

3️⃣ In a large pot with boiling water add the 2 bay leaves and the peas. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove and drain.

4️⃣ In a bowl mix gently the peas, onion and pepper, bay leaves, tomato, dill, salt and the sun-dried tomatoes. Empty the mixture in a casserole dish (about 2 L). Drizzle over the rest of the olive oil. Sprinkle with the breadcrumbs.

5️⃣ Add about ½ cup hot water in the side of the dish titling so that the water spreads at the whole base of the dish.

6️⃣ Grind some black pepper over it and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes until the peas have thickened.

7️⃣ Remove and let it cool.

8️⃣ Serve as is or with feta.
