- Serves 6:
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 pound frozen green peas
- 2 potatoes, diced
- 15 ounces tomato puree
- 1 cup water
- salt and pepper to taste
- pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 tablespoon dried dill
- 1-2 tablespoons fresh chopped mint
Cook onion, garlic and oil over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes or until soft and golden.
Add potatoes, tomato puree, water, salt, and peppers.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 15 minutes.
Add frozen peas and cook through until they are warm. About 5 minutes.
Taste sauce and adjust seasoning if necessary. You may add a little bit of sugar if the tomato puree was too acidic.
Add dill and mint and stir to incorporate.
This dish tastes best when allowed to sit at least 45 minutes. This allows all the flavors to come together. The potatoes will continue to absorb the sauce and it will naturally thicken and taste wonderful.
