  1. I used to love this, the only difference was that it was mostly made with green beans. For meat lovers, cuts of roast lamb were added 10 minuts, or so before serving. Thank you for sharing this, my mouth’s watering already.

  2. Don’t the potatoes take longer to cook then the peas? I’ll be adding my peas in last as I don’t like them mushy and I’ll try it without any oil. Thanks

  3. I love it! When I make that dish, I use like a teaspoon of oil, sauté garlic onion oregano then add the rest of the ingredients, cook and serve with rice. I can never use that much oil though 🙁

  4. Flicking through older videos and am thinking of making this very soon (I’ve always known it as Piseli lol) I would love to see a Fasolaki recipe too if that’s ok with you, whenever you have time…thanks 🙂

  5. i love ur channel .i am spanish and plant based and its difficult to get more mediterranean recipes.please do more videos of stew and bean based recipes.

  6. hold on… you play the eclectric guitar??? :-))) we have friends over the week-end. This looks like a super recipe Id like to try… and not too difficult… 😉

  7. Ahahahaha “a little olive oil, if you want, it’s optional” *chucks in 1/2 a cup* 😛 this honestly looks so delicious! I’ll be telling Freelee that if you add the oil later on in the cooking, it doesn’t count 😉 great video! I love your channel
