WHAT IS IT?
(pronounced “fah-vah”) is a yellow split pea puree, complimented by
onions, capers and of course, olive oil.
Although similar to hummus, this fava dip is not composed of beans, but
rather of yellow split peas. Particularly infamous in the international
hot-spot of Santorini in Greece, fava dip has gained fame as a signature
culinary offering. Enjoyable as a dish, side or as the ultimate snack, its
sweetish taste and creamy texture will speak to your taste buds and win
over your hearts. The characteristics of GEFSI Fava make its consumption
