3/4 cup olive oil
3 to 4 tablespoons of chopped fresh dill
3 chopped spring onions
2 grated or blended tomatoes
1 tsp sugar
1 & 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen peas
6 fresh or frozen artichoke hearts (cut in half)
1 cup of water
juice of 1 & 1/2 lemons
salt and pepper to taste
1. Add oil to a medium sized pot on the stove on high heat. Add the spring onions and dill and stir fry for about 1 minute, until the spring onions begin to turn bright green.
2. Add the grated tomatoes and sugar. Lower the heat slightly, stir and cover and leave for about 10 minutes, occasionally stirring.
3. Add the artichokes, peas, water, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Then immediately cover the pot with a lid, turn the heat down and let simmer for 30 minutes on the stove. Stir occasionally.
4. After 30 minutes, turn off the heat and add lemon juice. Do not stir, just shake the pan to distribute. Cover, and let sit for about ten minutes before serving.
