Ingredients

  • 1/2  Pound  yellow potatoes, diced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1/2  Pound  zucchini, quartered and sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • Olive oil, as needed
  • 1  Cup  cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2  Cup  peas, defrosted if using frozen
  • 1 1/2  Tablespoon  lemon juice
  • 2  Tablespoons  finely chopped mint
  • shallot, sliced

Directions

Coat a large skillet with olive oil and set it over a medium-high flame. Sauté the potatoes, stirring occasionally so they are able to properly brown. Once the potatoes are beginning to become brown and tender, add the shallot. Continue to sauté until the potatoes are golden brown and cooked though, and the shallot has completely caramelized. Remove the potatoes to a bowl and cover with foil.

Sauté the zucchini, adding a little additional oil if the pieces are sticking to the bottom of the pan. When the zucchini is brown and almost cooked through, add the tomatoes and continue to sauté until slightly browned.

Return the potatoes to the pan along with the peas. Cook the mixture until the potatoes and peas are piping hot and cooked through.

Off the heat, add the lemon juice and mint and toss to combine. Serve alongside a grilled piece of lamb, or as is for a satisfying weeknight meal for one.

Mediterranean Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Mediterranean Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
