Spetsofái - A traditional Greek appetizer from Pelion

Ingredients to make Spetsofái

2 tbs Tragano Greek Organics Organic EVOO

2-3 sausages (preferably spicy but mild Italian sausage works, too), cut into 1 inch slices

1 onion, thinly sliced

1-2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

2 long green peppers or 2 bell peppers, cubed

2 whole Tragano Greek Organics Roasted Capia Peppers, sliced into 1 inch cubes

1/2 jar of Elli & Manos Tomato & Garlic Greek Flavor Burst (you can also use the Tomato & Feta version for a milder flavor)

1 tsp Sparoza Greek Farmer's Salad Mix

Freshly-ground pepper 

How to prepare Spetsofái

Heat the olive oil in a pan on high heat and sauté the sausages for 2-3 minutes until they're golden brown.

Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 5 more minutes until the onion is translucent.

Add the peppers and mix well. Then add your Elli & Manos sauce, stirring well so that all the veggies & sausage is coated. Drop the heat to low, cover and let the food simmer for about 15 minutes. In the end, add a generous pinch of Sparoza's Farmer's Salad seasoning mix, taste, and if needed or if you want even more spicy, add freshly-ground pepper.

You can enjoy spetsofái warm or at room temperature, it's equally tasty and gets even better the next day. Pair it with fresh crusty bread and feta cheese and share it with friends & family with other meze appetizers for an authentic Greek experience. 

If you don't like sausages or are vegetarian or vegan you can still enjoy the dish by substituting the sausages with cubed eggplants. Enjoy!
