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 !

Ingredients: 

For the yogurt sauce with tahini
3 tbsp. yogurt
1 tbsp. tahini
1 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. honey
Freshly ground pepper
1-2 tbsp. chopped capers

For fava (yellow split peas) patties

250g. cooked thick fava, chilled for 1 day (leftover)
1 large onion, chopped
2-3 spring onions, chopped
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tomato, cut into cubes
1/2 bunch dill, chopped
1/2 bunch parsley, chopped
a little mint, chopped
1/2 tsp sweet paprika
a little olive oil (1-2 tbsp)
1 teacup coarse semolina 
salt and fresh-grounded pepper

flour for breading
olive oil for drizzling

 

Place thick, cold yellow split peas, we have left over, in a large bowl. Combine all ingredients and fresh herbs.   Season with salt and pepper to taste. Thoroughly combine, adding a little more semolina, if necessary, to form a firm mixture, not sticky.
With wet hands rip off golf ball sized pieces of dough and flatten with your hands.  Spread greaseproof paper on a baking dish and place yellow split peas patties after you flour them . Drizzle with olive oil and put them in the oven under grill for about 15-20 minutes, until golden brown on both sides. 

Tip: 

Serve with pita, or on its own with your favorite salad or dipping sauce. Ιdeally accompanied by this particular yogurt with tahini sauce and with bulgur salad.
