½ kg Santorini yellow split peas (they taste different from the others)
1 red onion (whole)
a little salt
For the trimmings
3 red onions, cut in rings
3 tbsp capers
4 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp Classic Balsamic Cream Kalamata Papadimitriou
Very little salt
Boil the split peas in one liter of water together with the whole onion and some salt. When the peas have softened and turned into mush, allow cooling down, and then process in a blender until you get a smooth puree.
In a large frying pan, heat up the oil and add the onion rings and a spoonful of sugar.
Sauté the onion rings until translucent and then add the capers, balsamic cream and very little salt.
Stir thoroughly until the onion rings caramelize. Serve the split pea puree adding the onion rings on top, together with the capers and the cream that is left in the frying pan.
Finally, add some thyme on every plate and serve.
