Milk Street Recipe

Greek Split Pea Dip with Onion-Roasted Pepper Relish (Fava)

1 hour, 20 minutes 20 minutes active

The Greek name for this dip is “fava,” though it contains no fava beans. Instead, dried yellow split peas are simmered until thick and porridge-like, then pureed with red wine vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil to produce a rich, creamy hummus-like dip. A relish made with roasted red peppers, capers and fresh herbs brightens its earthy flavors. Serve with pita bread and crudités.
