I was thinking of a recipe I needed to be made fast, so I came up with peppers and pea stew. I’ve used raw peppers and carrot, but frozen peas and chopped tomatoes work as well. The prep time took only a few minutes. The dish needs a bit over 20 minutes to cook, so, from start to finish, this might be a dish that takes 30 minutes to make.
The dish is vegan and healthy. It seems like most of the vegan dishes I make are healthy. With the amount of veggies packed in a single serving, that is 4 of the 5 veggies a day! So, if you struggle, make a peppers and pea stew that is also delicious. It can be served with wholemeal bread or polenta chips.
Ingredients for 2 servings of Peppers and Pea Stew:
– 4 peppers, 2 red and 2 green
– 300g frozen peas
– 1 can of chopped tomatoes
– 2 spoons of vegetable oil
– 1/2 carrot
– 1 tsp sea salt
– 1 tsp smoked paprika
– 2 tsp dried parsley
– 1 tsp dried dill
Start by preparing the vegetables. Wash and peel the carrot. Using a vegetable peeler, cut thin slices. It is done fast and the carrot slices will cook rapidly. Wash, remove the seeds, and cut the peppers in slices. Boil a bit of water and pour it over the frozen peas, this way they will defrost fast and you’ll be able to use them in the dish.
Heat the oil in a pan over low to medium heat, toss in the spices and stir, so they heat up. Take off the hob and add the chopped tomatoes. Stir, put back on the heat and leave to cook for 5 minutes or until they start to boil. Now add the carrots and the peppers, stir and leave to cook for 10 minutes. Put the lid on and stir from time to time so it doesn’t catch the bottom of the pan. After those 10 minutes, add the peas and stir. Leave the stew to cook for another 5 minutes.
Now the peppers and pea stew is done and it can be served. Enjoy!
