    Julie B's Hive's Note:

    Similar to humus but made with yellow split peas. Pull out your food processor and give it a try!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Rinse the split peas under running cold water.
    2. 2
      Put in medium-sized pan and add the coarsely chopped onion, the garlic and plenty of cold water.
    3. 3
      Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 45 minutes or until very tender.
    4. 4
      Drain, reserving some of the cooking liquid, and put in a food processor or blender.
    5. 5
      Add 5 tablespoons of the oil and process until smooth.
    6. 6
      If the mixture seems too dry, add enough of the reserved liquid to form a smooth, thick puree. (If you don't have a food processor you can mash the spilt peas with a fork in a bowl).
    7. 7
      Add the oregano and season to taste with salt and pepper.
    8. 8
      Turn the mixture into a serving bowl and sprinkle with the finely chopped onion and extra oregano, if desired.
    9. 9
      Drizzle over the remaining oil.
    10. 10
      Serve warm or cold with savory biscuits.

      What a creamy, smooth and yummy dip! Mmmm, so good with fresh veggies! I luved the silky smooth texture of the split peas in combination with the rough onions. And the taste is just fabulous: tangy onion with earthy herbs and a little bit of bite from the garlic. Very tasty! I used a little less onions on top as I dont care for raw onions that much and also reduced the oil a tad as I felt the dip didnt need it. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your recipe with us, Julie! Made and reviewed for the Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #42 July 2010.
