Yellow split pea dip

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 6 people

  • 125 ml (½ cup) olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 460 gm (2 cups) yellow split peas, rinsed
  • To serve: sumac and finely chopped Spanish onion
01   Combine oil and onion in a casserole, stir occasionally over medium-high heat until tender (2-3 minutes), add split peas and 2 litres cold water, season to taste and bring to the boil.
02   Reduce heat to very low and simmer gently without stirring until very tender (50 minutes-1 hour). Whisk until split peas break down (3-4 minutes), remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly (30 minutes). Season generously and serve warm, scattered with Spanish onion and sumac and drizzled with extra olive oil, with bread and olives to the side.
