Peas with carrots in red sauce (Αρακάς με καρότα)

This is an easy meal and also a very tasty vegetarian option. Recipe is for 4 servings


900gr peas (petit pois)
3 carrots, cut in chunks
250ml Passata
1 onion, chopped fine
1 ladle of olive oil
Salt and Pepper


You add the olive oil with the peas in the pan and stir. Then add the carrots and the onion and stir again. Finally add 1 spoonful of salt and ½ teaspoon pepper as well as the passata and stir again. If you are using a pressure cooker, then it needs 5 minutes of cooking. If you are using a normal pot, then add ½ cup of water in the mix and it needs 30 minutes on a low heat or until all the water is evaporated.
It goes well served with some rice or on its’ own.



  1. Red sauce adds taste to the peas and carrots vegetarian meal.
