Mediterranean Split Pea Dip

Recipe by Julie Bs Hive
READY IN: 55mins




  • Rinse the split peas under running cold water.
  • Put in medium-sized pan and add the coarsely chopped onion, the garlic and plenty of cold water.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 45 minutes or until very tender.
  • Drain, reserving some of the cooking liquid, and put in a food processor or blender.
  • Add 5 tablespoons of the oil and process until smooth.
  • 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).
  • Add the oregano and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Turn the mixture into a serving bowl and sprinkle with the finely chopped onion and extra oregano, if desired.
  • Drizzle over the remaining oil.
  • Serve warm or cold with savory biscuits.
