Fancy Peasant Fava

Here's the thing - Greek Fava isn’t made with fava beans; it’s actually made from split peas (Greeks are confusing, I know, but we invented, like, everything, so give us a break). Serve this with crusty sourdough or loads of veg to dip!

Fancy Peasant Fava


  • 1 pound yellow split peas, washed
  • 5 cups of water
  • 1 large white onion, sliced
  • Sprinkle of thyme
  • ¼ cup of Fancy Peasant GEVOO
  • Salt


  • In a large saucepan, add yellow split peas, onions, thyme, GEVOO, salt, and water. Boil for 45 minutes on low heat under tender. (Remove any foam, add more water if necessary)
  • Next, blend mixture until soft, add salt if needed
  • Serve on a plate with capers, tomatoes, sautèd onions, fresh flat leaf parsley, and a drizzle of GEVOO on top.
