Greek Fava – The best yellow split pea puree

Greek Fava – The best yellow split pea puree

The Greek Fava’s secrets are the lemon and the roasted peppers. The Hungarian yellow split pea puree is almost the same as the Greek yellow split pea puree, but we do not add lemon juice. I also like the Hungarian yellow split pea puree, I often ate it as a child but the Greek Fava is better. My favorite yellow split pea puree is the Greek Fava.

Usually I eat fava with roasted pepper and red onion.
