This is a super easy, super health dish. Serve fava as a main course with some fresh bread and salad. Or enjoy as a mezze, that is bring as part of a collections of dishes to be shared around the table. For example with some tzatziki.
Fava is not just delicious and very nutritious. It’s also super easy to cook. All you have to do is put a few ingredients and some water in a pan and dress before you serve. The most renowned Greek split peas come from the island of Santorini. Don’t forget, the lemon juice is absolutely esssential!
Kids love fava. It makes for a super easy lunch too so it’s very popular round our place. We try to eat pulses/legumes at least a couple of times a week and this split pea dip is very often on the menu. Let us know what you think!
