I tried the Greek fava with octopus and capers to nibble, and also had it with rice and grilled vegetables the next day as dinner!
2 cups of Arosis yellow fava lentils from Lidl
4 cups of water (add more if needed)
1 large onion
1 garlic clove
capers and/or fresh onion to serve
1 can of octopus in vinegar from Lidl
Chop the onion and garlic.
Add hot olive oil in a pan and fry the onions and garlic until they are light brown in colour
Add the lentils and water and let the boil for an hour (or more if needed).
When the lentils are very soft, add them in a processor to make the smooth fava.
Serve the fava in a plate with the octopus, a few capers and fresh onion rings.
