Peas in Tomato Sauce (Revithia Me Saltsa Domata)

I found this wonderful recipe on but it started with dried chick peas. Not having the luxury of time, I ended up remaking the recipe with a slightly more convenient ingredients. This can be served either as a side-dish serving 4 or an entrée serving 2.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove peas from the freezer so that they can begin to thaw while the dish is simmering.
  2. Add olive oil and onions to a large skillet over medium heat. Cook 2 or 3 minutes until the onions soften a bit. Add the minced garlic and stir a minute.
  3. Add the tomatoes (canned and paste), sugar, oregano, basil, and water to the onions. Continue to cook another 5 minutes so that flavors begin to come together. Adjust seasonings as desired at this point. Add zucchini and cook 5 to 8 minutes. The zucchini should be cooked but still firm.
  4. Add the thawed peas and stir again until the peas are warm, about 2 or 3 minutes.
  5. Serve warm.

Deliciously seasoned; this makes the peas so sweet! I omitted the zucchini and doubled the peas, hoping dh would eat it. He didn't, but the kids did. Thanks for an interesting side dish!

You could use a number of vegies for this: asparagus tips, broccolini, artichoke hearts, etc. Quick and delicious. I like the fact the vegies aren't simmered for a long period of time. Fresh tasting, especially if you choose to use fresh toms and fresh basil as I did. Fresh basil for me is the only way to go...
