  1. yummmm… but too much oil for me… i skip the oil.


  3. Exactly right. As a woman said in another video on Ikaria that I watched, if you don’t have olive oil in the house, you can’t cook.

  4. What would go well with this?

  5. +Andrea Lakeland Ikarian-Style Sourdough Bread would pair very well with this stew and would lower the glycemic load of your meal.

  6. Delicious and really filling.

  7. Looks great, however, the Teflon pan can be a health problem.

  8. Are these canned black eyed peas? Or dried?

  9. +dfrisable These are canned black eyed peas, but dried beans are great for this recipe, as well. All you’d need to do is soak them before preparing the stew.

  10. How many servings does this recipe create? Thanks for the recipe!

  11. +roundandsquareful This recipe serves 4. Enjoy!

  12. Thank you 🙂

  13. YÜM! I’ve made this a few times now. Always delicious.

  14. Mind that: try this and other recipes like this, with bread, feta cheese, olives and red wine.
    How can you eat only the recipe? There are sooo many flavors to mix

  15. Should’ve been ‘Kali Orexi’ instead of bon appetit lol, thanks for this healthy recipe 🙂
