I've no idea why but I thought it was something you would slice or scoop on to your plate like a ... crikey I can't think of what it would be like lol. Anyway not the texture of hummus. More solid than that.
I shall have to buy a can now lol.
I like hummus and I like mushy peas. I like dahl too. I like most things veggie so I should be OK.
Who knew there was a Greek version?! Mind you in Cyprus last year they did the most blumming amazing mushy peas in one restaurant.
I'm not keen on the canned stuff. My first exposure to pease pudding was when I moved to the north east and we would buy it loose, always from the butcher. I always preferred it cold but here, the Fava, is generally served warm with a dribble of olive oil and a few chopped onions on top and it is really nice that way. When I make it myself, I chuck a whole onion in with the split peas while they are cooking, then take it out when they are finished so that it just imparts it's flavour. One of the local specialities from the butchers there is a Saveloy Dip - a large flat soft bap cut in half with one side spread with pease pudding and the other side spread with sage and onion stuffing.In the middle is a large saveloy sausage split in half (with mustard, if desired). Then the whole thing is very quickly dipped in gravy.40 years ago, I could eat them and loved them and was pleased to see that they are still sold and enjoyed there.Sam had one last time we were there, I was sooo envious.
It's a great pity the right of free speech isn't based on the obligation to say something sensible.
