Yellow split pea puree (fava)

Serves 8 people


  • 500gr yellow split peas
  • 1 medium onion
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • salt, pepper
  • finely chopped parsley
  • finely chopped onion
  • juice of 1 lemon

Wash the split peas, place them in a pot, cover with water and let them boil. Skim off the scum that forms on the top of the water.
Add the onion quartered, a little salt, half the olive oil, and let it simmer for 1 hour until the peas are soft and have acquired the consistency of thick porridge.
Put the split peas through a food mill until they are a smooth puree. Add the rest oil, the lemon juice, the finely chopped onion and a little more salt and pepper. Stir and garnish with the finely chopped parsley.
