  • Bring a pot of water to a boil and blanch the peas in it for a few minutes. Fish out the peas with a slotted spoon and put them in a small bowl to cool. Then add the rice to the same pot and cook until al dente.
  • Meanwhile, thoroughly clean the peppers outside and inside. Then cut into small cubes. Peel and finely dice the onion.
  • Wash the tomatoes and cut them in half. Remove the flesh with a spoon and remove. Then dice the tomatoes as well.
  • Also cut the feta cheese into cubes of the same size. Cut the olives into small pieces.
