Greek Peas with Potatoes and Herbs (Arakas Kokkinistos)

The Greek name for this dish, arakas kokkinistos, translates as “reddened peas.” The version taught to us by Greek cooking instructor Argiro Barbarigou included tomato paste, and that’s what we call for here. Whereas traditional arakas kokkinistos is pea-centric, we've included a generous amount of potatoes and some carrots to give the stew-like dish enough substance and heft that it can be served as a vegetarian main. Lemon zest and juice added at the end, along with a generous dose of fresh herbs, brightens the flavors.

Tip

Don't allow the onion and garlic to brown. Cook only until the onion has softened, so the flavors remain light, without any caramelized notes. Don't use concentrated tomato paste from a tube, as it will muddy the flavors and make the dish too tomatoey. Don't thaw the peas before use; they can be added frozen to the pot.
