Author Notes

We usually make this green pea dish with chopped lamb pieces, back at home in Turkey. We are currently going through challenging times, forcing us to be creative and come up with novel ideas.
I made this dish last night with whatever I could find in my freezer and pantry, peas and root vegetables respectively. It turned out to be a real treat. We devoured this with mixed quinoa rice and plain yoghurt on the side. —Saboush
