A very nice Greek colleague of mine, Illias got me a gourmet Greek recipe book along with some Greek liquor, ouzo and pastille ( til chikki with honey). This recipe is from that book, but being a vegetarian I have used veg sausages. This can be served as a side or a main dish.

Beef or pork or veg sausages-500gms
Onion-1, thinly sliced
Garlic-2 cloves
Cherry tomatoes- 1 cup ( or 1 can Santorini tomatoes)
Green bell peppers-4, cut in strips
Roasted peppers-3, drained and cut in strips
EV olive oil-1/4 cup
Balsamic vinegar-2 tbsp
Honey-1 tsp
Oregano-1 tsp, fresh or dried
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Cut the sausage into thick slices and saute them in 1 tbsp oliveoil till browned and cooked through on medium heat. Keep them aside.
2.In the same pan saute onion and garlic on low heat untill soft.
3. Add the green peppers and saute untill soft but firm. Then add the roasted peppers and combine.
4. Add sausage back to the skillet. Prepare vinagerette combining balsamic vinegar, honey ,thyme and oregano and add this too.
5. To the above add the cherry tomatoes or santorini tomatoes. Cook all together for 12-15 min for flavours to meld.
Serve it warm with feta if desired.

  1. I gave it to Ilias and he said the aroma is just like the original (since I have never had it!)but the original spetsofai has a strong flavour from the meat. He complinted me on my first attempt at Greek dish.
