Perfect healthy recipe , but I didn't add parsley or dill as I felt it will be too many flavors , also I ignored the tomato paste , I only used fresh tomato .It turned yummy with white rice and steak .

I made this dish for my daughters book club group and my only change that I would make to this recipe is I would not add as much dill to it. Other than that this dish is GREAT

I adapted this recipe to use in the crockpot. I cooked the peas on high until almost done, drained, and then added the rest of the ingredients and let it cook on low several hours. I used dried herbs (1/3 of the listed amounts) as well. This was very tasty & a recipe I would use again. I served with Onion and Chive Pitas and cantaloupe slices. I froze the rest of the stew and am hoping it tastes as good reheated. Thank you for sharing your recipe Katia! Reviewed for ZWT 3.
