DIRECTIONS

  • Chop one of the onions into rough chunks. Add to the split peas, bay leaves and turmeric in a large saucepan.
  • Add enough water to cover twice the amount of peas.
  • Bring to the simmer, skim off any scum, cover and let simmer for 60 minutes or until the peas are soft.
  • Keep an eye on them and add more water if necessary, they should be loose and sloppy like thick porridge at the end.
  • While the peas are cooking, slice the remaining onions finely and fry in a tablespoon of the oil until they are golden brown. Set aside.
  • When the peas are cooked, remove the bay leaves, blend the peas with the olive oil, garlic cloves and lemon juice until you have a smooth paste. Add water if the mixture is too stiff.
  • Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Stir in half the fried onion.
  • Serve in a bowl with the rest of the fried onion, capers, chives and add a drizzle of olive oil.
