Ah ha, Greekman what you know as Fava beans I know as yellow split peas. These are easily available in most grocery stores and yes they are quite good. Here is the bean I though you were referring to. Fresh and dried and skinned. Thanks for the recipes, I will try some.


Greekman:
just a sec....
what you call fava is this, isn't it? (pissum sativum)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Split_pea

our fava comes from this
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lathyrus_clymenum

regardless, if you are not objectionable to such grainy, amylum texture like all beans and peas, you should try it...

I see the confusion I think. Your Lathyrus Clymenum resembles our pisum sativum.

The bean I know as fava is vicia faba. In the link see 5.7 for Greece and I think you will see the confusion.

BTW I love yellow split peas. Often I'll cook them, put in food processor to grind some, add onion, a little cayenne pepper, form into patties and fry. I have something over a Kilo of them in the panty.

"Greece

The Greek word fáva (φάβα) does not refer to broad beans, but to the yellow split pea and also to another legume, known as Lathyrus sativus. Broad beans are known instead as koukiá (Greek: κουκιά), and are eaten in a stew combined with artichokes, while they are still fresh in their pods. Dried broad beans are eaten boiled, sometimes combined with garlic sauce (skordalia). In Crete, fresh broad beans are shelled and eaten as a companion to tsikoudia, the local alcoholic drink. Favism is quite common in Greece because of malaria endemicity in previous centuries, and people afflicted by it do not eat broad beans."

And now I've given myself a headache figuring this out.  :rofl: I will try the recipes you posted.

want me find a good local recipe?

Yes! I've been reading that the Fava is very nutritious. I do like the idea of a salad with onions, garlic, oil etc.
