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

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.

Tip

Don't forget to stir the split peas as they simmer, and make sure to scrape along the bottom of the pot. If you begin to feel the peas sticking to the bottom, stir more frequently to prevent scorching.
