Fava, this simple puree of yellow split peas made velvety with a copious amount of great Greek olive oil, and tangy with a spritz of lemon, is one of the great meze dishes of Greek cuisine. It's also one of the most versatile, since you can marry fava with almost anything. To find the fava itself, as well as toppings like capers, caper leaves and wonderful Greek olive oil for garnish, go to my online store here
Note: You can purée the split peas with olive oil using a food processor or immersion blender for an extra smooth final texture.
Tip: Add a few teaspoons of milk, which makes the fava even smoother and creamier.
