Arakas Latheros Greek Peas

Arakas Latheros Greek Peas

Put a Greek twist on a traditional legume dish. Delicious with or without tomoatoes.


You can make this without the tomatoes, if you wish. In that case, add just enough water to cover the peas.


  • 5 pounds fresh peas
  • 4 scallions
  • 1 1/4 oil or 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 tomatoes, peeled, strained or 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • mixed with 2 cups water
  • 3 dill, chopped
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • water as needed


1. Shell, wash and drain peas. Chop white part of the scallions into small pieces, and the green part into large pieces.

2. Heat oil in large pot. Add the scallions and cook until soft but not browned. Add the peas and brown and cook very lightly. Add the tomatoes (or the diluted paste), dill, salt, and pepper. Add enough water to half cover the peas.

3. Cover the pot. Cook over medium heat until only the oil remains and the liquid has been absorbed (about. 45 min.).

Jaclyn: Thanks for catching the missing information. The recipe has been updated to reflect 5 pounds of fresh peas. The recipe likely serves more than 10 people, if you figure that servings are about 6 oz a person. I hope this helps! Thanks! Blair, editor for

When you say 5 fresh peas, is this 5 pounds of peas? Also how many does the recipe serve? nanakats2
