|Helena Barlow kindly gave us this recipe for traditional Greek fava, it's made with our Flamingo Peas instead of the more usual split yellow peas or grass peas and they give it a sweetness, a beautiful warm colour and a creamy texture.|
Traditional Greek fava, but made with Flamingo pink peas rather than grass peas (as might be the case with fava santorini). This recipe was inspired by my Greek auntie and her friend at Oliveology in London’s Borough Market. It was seriously delicious and totally cured my craving for the fava we eat in Crete. These Flamingo peas are special as they are a new variety that’s only just been grown in the UK for the first time this year - highly recommend that you try them!

This easy and versatile dish makes the most of seasonal fruit for a superb late summer dessert - or even a whole meal! It's especially lovely made with little yellow mirabelle plums, which have a wonderful honeydew sweetness.
