Hello and welcome to Freshly Served in Europe.
Tonight Phil and I are making a Mediterranean
Potato dish. You can find the recipe at HealthyVeganRecipes.net
and you can also see a lot more of our travels
So while I chopped up my vegetables, I will
show you a little clip, we were coachsurfing
last night with a guy named Ibrahim, who was
very fun and we got to hang out in his pottery
shop for a little while during the afternoon.

Tonight what we’re making is we’re trying
some potatoes and basically what happens is
we went to the market, there’s a bunch of
fresh fruits and vegetables stands all over
Turkey and well Istanbul. That’s all seem
so far but there’s lot all over the street
of Istanbul so we went to our neighbourhood
store and saw what they had in season and
that’s what we are going to cook tonight.
So, I’ve got some potatoes ready to go,
we’re gonna put these into this pot over
here. I‘ve got a little bit of salt in there
to help them boil and they are going to go
until they are soft. The rest of the vegetables
I’m just going to do fresh and I’m gonna
go chopped those up right now. I’ve got
some red peppers, some tomatoes and some cucumbers.

So, the tomatoes are gotten cooked and Phil
was kind enough to drain them for me and they
are now still in that same pot, they are just
on the heat and I haven’t added any oil
because we don’t have any here.
And I’m just gonna add these fresh vegetables
to mix everything together and heat it up
just slightly so I’ve got the cucumber,
I’ve got some nice fresh olives, the tomatoes
and the red pepper. I’m gonna stir these
all together and all I’m gonna used to season
this tight is a little bit of salt. Olives
are quite salty so I don’t really need much
but just to bring the flavours out of tomatoes
I guess we’ve been getting used to eating
very simply on our trip. People at home could
use a bit of oil and some spices. Right! I’ve
probably suggest, just a few light herbs like
basil, oregano and those kind of Mediterranean
herbs. So there we go, I’m just gonna put
a little sprinkle of salt and I also don’t
have any black pepper otherwise, probably
we’ll put some of that on here too.
So there is our finish Mediterranean potato
dish, it is very very simple but when you
have fresh vegetables that are very delicious
you want to take advantage of their flavours
and not add too much to them.
So, I hope you enjoyed, you can find the recipe
at HealthyVeganRecipes.net and again you can
