Thank you to everyone who attended our last Culture Kitchen featuring our guest chef Olga, who showed us how to make Araka! This delicious greek dish is not only a flavorful vegetarian dish, but it also uses low cost ingredients and is super easy to make. If you're looking for vegetable-dominant dish that still packs a ton of flavor, look no further!
Below are the necessary ingredients, as well as the recipe.
As always, make sure to check out our next Culture Kitchen coming up in
August featuring a guest chef from Germany!
2-3 tablespoons of dill, chopped
16 oz bag of frozen peas
16 oz bag of sliced/chopped carrots
15 oz can of diced tomatoes
1/2 cup olive oil (or more if you like olive oil)
1/4 cup water
Dash of salt to your liking
Feta cheese and bread for after cooking to add to the dish (optional)
Place oil in a pan on medium-high heat.
Once oil is hot, add carrots. Sauté carrots until they begin to soften.
Add the peas, tomatoes, and dill. Mix the items in the pan.
Add salt to your liking.
Once the ingredients are combined, add hot water to cover the top of the ingredients, along with more olive oil if desired.
Bring to a boil and simmer covered for 30-45 until carrots are cooked.
After the carrots are cooked to your liking, remove the dish from the heat. Serve with feta cheese and bread if desired. You can also add a drizzle of olive oil on top.
