Greek fava is a dish of pureed yellow split peas topped with any variety of toppings. The puree is flavored in the cooking with onion and carrot and broth, and then whatever toppings you choose bring extra punch. Legumes bring a lot of protein to the party, making it a wonderful swap for potatoes, and the dish can be easily made vegetarian or vegan with no loss of flavor. Even better, it can be made on the stovetop, or in an Instant Pot, or a slow cooker, so you can adapt the recipe for the way you prefer to cook.Traditional toppings include a salad of fresh chopped ripe tomatoes and thin sliced red onion tossed with olive oil and salt and pepper, and fried capers for crunch. Drizzle the oil you fried the capers in over the top. There many more ideas for toppings here.You can hold the fava, covered, in a 200-degree oven until it is time to serve, but it is also great at room temp, so you can just keep it in the pan, covered on the back of your stove with no heat. Give it a good stir, and if it has thickened in sitting, add a tablespoon or two of stock or olive oil to help loosen it back up.
