Greek Peas Stew is a delicious and healthy Greek dish made with potatoes and carrots in a tomato-olive-based sauce. It's easy to make with just a couple of simple ingredients.
This is a traditional Greek and vegan recipe with peas, carrots, potatoes and herbs. It belongs to a category of Greek dishes called "Lathera", which means vegetables cooked in an olive oil- based sauce, often with tomatoes and fresh herbs. The word "Lathera" comes from the Greek word "Ladi", which means Oil (i.e. olive oil). These kind of dishes are quite typical in the Greek cuisine. They are a big part of the Mediterranean diet and a nutritional heaven.
