The Fava of Santorini
The Aegean islands are famous for their fava production.However, Santorini fava beans are the most famous. It comes from the plant lathouri, and we usually taste it in the form of puree. Its taste is memorable and unique and belongs primarily to Mediterranean food. Although it is a legume, it is considered a summer food and a lovely accompaniment for a glass of wine.
Let’s cook Fava Santorini!
“Today a wedding is taking place”… The fava of Santorini “marries” the onion and “combines” with the unique taste of the caper Santorini. See the basic recipe from Argyro, here. Now consider being with good company and being served with caramelized onions and fried Santorini capers. Be sure that this accompaniment will offer you the fullness that your sense of smell and taste need. You can find the recipe for the “married” here, by the distinguished Chef Giannis Loukakos. We also suggest you try Grilled Octopus with Santorini fava from the unique Tetis flakes.
Santorini fava goes perfectly with fish or seafood and significantly enhances the taste of risotto or a fresh salad. Combine this product with sun-dried tomatoes and EON extra virgin olive oil.
