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