Kira Thira DJ Mixes....Fava.

Of course, santorini is host to the famous sangria at the kira thira. we also like to mix something other than groovy jazz music from time to time.

Santorini Fava.

- 1 cup of fava to 2 - 2 1/2 cups water approx
- 1 1/2 small onion
- extra olive oil,
- 1/2 a lemon, salt

- wash the fava lentils well
- set to boil in a large non-stick cooking pot, (medium
heat) adding enough water to create a thick paste.
- keep checking in case the fava has dried out
- half way though cooking time add a roughly chopped
small onion & 2 tablespoons of olive oil (optional)
- salt to taste
- when the fava is cooked, remove from fire & allow to cool
- blend or mash the mixture well
- scoop the amount you want into a serving dish & place
the remainder of the mix in the fridge to use later
- SERVE with an extra lashing of olive oil, half a squeezed lemon and some onions on top.

And. Make it how you like it best: Fava dip can be served warm or cold.

Also, in Santorini, we have something called "Married Fava" to give the dish a little flavor, since it's sometimes bland by itself.

Take the onions from the top of the fava and grill them in a pan with the olive oil. Once the onions are soft, dump the fava on top and the flavors mix together.
