250 gr. split peas
2 onions, coarsely chopped
120 ml. Altis Traditional Extra Virgin Oil
1 laurel leaf
½ teaspoon oregano
1000 ml. vegetable broth or water
Freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon capers
1 scallion, minced
1 onion, minced
20 ml. Altis Traditional Olive Oil
We boiled the split peas in plenty of cold water for 20 min. over high heat, constantly skimming; then, we drain it and rinse it under the tap.
In a clean saucepan, we saute half the olive oil, split peas, onions, laurel leaf, pepper, and we add the broth; we let the split peas simmer for approximately 40-45 min. until they become tender; if necessary, we add more water.
When the mix thickens, we add the salt and remaining olive oil, stir well; we pour the olive oil over it and then serve with capers and scallions.
– We can mash the split peas in the blender
– We place the split peas in the fridge, covered with a layer of olive oil
