Split Pea Puree (Fava)

Split Pea Puree (Fava)

( Type: Appetizers ) 


Supplies:

1/2 kg fava (yellow or green split peas -lentil) 

 2 medium onions, roughly chopped

 1 tea spoon salt, pepper

 3 tbsp olive oil

To Serve: Olive oil to taste; 

 2 lemons in slices

 1 finely chopped onion

 Olives (optional) 

 Place split peas in a pot with onion, salt, 3 tbsp olive oil and cover with 5 cups water. Cook over low heat until it becomes a mush and nearly all the water has been boiled off, about 1 hour. The pot should not be covered because the fava expands and so it might spill over. Near the end, stir continuously so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot and also to help it turn into pulp. When it cools, it becomes thicker. On serving, add olive oil according to taste, finely

chopped onion, lemon slices, olives, capers or mint leaves, if so desired. The dish in which fava is served should first be rubbed with garlic.
