Spetsofái - A traditional Greek appetizer from Pelion

Ingredients to make Spetsofái

2 tbsp Tragano Greek Organics Organic EVOO

2-3 large 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, diced into 1" 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 and/or red pepper flakes


How to make 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 the tomato sauce, stirring well so that all the veggies & sausage pieces are well-coated. Drop the heat to low, cover and let the food simmer for about 15 minutes. Then add a generous pinch of your seasonings, mix and adjust to taste. For a spicier version, add the pepper and/or pepper flakes.

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. 

For a vegetarian or vegan version of this dish, substitute the sausage with cubed eggplants. Enjoy!
