Discover the unique and delicious taste of authentic Greek Fava. This dish is made with yellow split peas and is a healthy and affordable option for any meal.

When I was younger, I never had a particular interest in Fava. I would see it on restaurant menus and I would always steer away from it, not really knowing what it was. Life has a funny way of making you re-evaluate your preferences though, and that's exactly what happened with me and Fava.

I found myself in a picturesque Greek taverna in Ikaria, where I had the best Fava dish that I ever tried (and trust me, I've had quite a few since then). Authentic Greek Fava is definitely something you should try if you're ever in Greece - it's healthy, it's flavourful, and it's definitely a unique dish. Plus, it's often served as a dip, which makes it perfect for sharing with friends or family. So next time you're in a Greek restaurant, don't be afraid to try the Fava - you might just be pleasantly surprised.
