Leftover cooked yellow split peas? Any idea of what to do with it? "Transform" it to a totally different version... Favokeftedes (yellow split peas patties)!!!
This is not a burger, nor falafel, it is something in between . Whatever it is, the yellow split peas patty is very nutritious and healthy because it is grilled and does not contain oils, yet still retains  a full flavor profile and it's very tasty !

Taramosalata is a rich and salty dip, but the ingredients, as with most Greek foods, are healthy. Fish roe is an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids and protein; olive oil as we all know is an excellent source of the good monounsaturated fats and antioxidants and lemon juice also rich in vitamin C, an antioxidant.

Sometimes recipes can be quite simple, as simple as they can get really. That doesn’t mean they are less delicious or that they lack in flavor or panache. A recipe doesn’t have to be difficult, laborious or extravagant to be worthwhile.
