Hides Fine Foods’ Fava

Fava is a greek recipe, a dip which we might see resonant of hummus. It’s often eaten as a side, and is perfect as an accompaniment to a greek mezze:



500g Hides Fine Foods Yellow Split Peas

3 cloves of garlic

2 red onions

1 litre water

80ml olive oil

2 lemons, juiced

Salt and pepper

1 Bay Leaf



  • Add 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil to a large pot on a medium heat. Add in the chopped onions and garlic, and saute. 


  • Pour in the water, and add in the yellow split peas.
  • Season with salt and pepper and place in the bay leaf. Simmer for 45 minutes until cooked. Throughout the cooking, skim off any white foam on the surface. 


  • Once cooked, remove the bay leaf. Blend until smooth. Stir in the lemon juice and the remaining olive oil. Season further to taste – the fava will thicken up once cooled!


  • You can garnish with toppings such as smoked paprika, and serve with pita bread!
