Little Greek Peas (Arakas Kokinistos)

LITTLE GREEK PEAS (Arakas Kokinistos)

What’s needed?

Loads (a small bag) of peas.

1 clove/spoon garlic

1 large red onion

1 large can of herb infused chopped tomatoes.

What age foodie?  8 months and beyond. 

What do I do? Sauté the onion and garlic. Add the frozen peas, large can of tomatoes and top up with boiling water.  Boiling for about 5 minutes.  Then reduce the heat and simmer for about 40 minutes.  Drain some of the juice off (but not too much).  This can then be eaten as it is or mashed up a touch using a hand masher.  Suitable for freezing.

What can it be used for? This tasty little dish can be eaten with mini pitta breads, rolled into wholemeal wraps or mixed together with some cooked pasta.

In the Summer use fresh peas if you can get your hands on some – children will love being involved and helping with the popping of these.
