Yellow Split Pea with Fennel
The delicious fava comes from the Split peas. They are an agricultural or culinary preparation consisting of the dried, peeled and split seeds of Pisum sativum but quite sidelined compared with other legumes of Greek Kitchen.
In a proverbial expressions find and this relative to beans: When something suspicious happens in a case, we say that "fava has a pit". This one does not, except in the habit of adding a little olive oil in the center by opening a small puddle.
You boil it plain with a little onion and aromatic fennel and serve mashed, lukewarm or cold, garnished with olives, onion dry and sprinkled with chopped dill. Combined with tasty onion pies.

Before a boil, and just as foam is formed, skim the surface thoroughly, with a spoon.
Add coarse salt, the sprigs of fennel, the dill and a large onion coarsely. We expect to thicken and become almost puree.
