Mashed Legumes with Onion, Capers & Radicchio (Sympetherio)
Radicchio, capers and onions brighten up this mashed lentil dish. Sympetheros means "father of one's son- or daughter-in-law," probably implying the "marrying" of different legumes in one dish. It's a meze served all over Greece. This recipe is inspired by the version Dimitris Mavrakis serves at his restaurant Kritamon in Archanes, near the spectacular Knossos archaeological site on Crete.
Tip: Look for "peeled" or "skinless" dried fava beans with other dried beans at well-stocked supermarkets or online at bobsredmill.com.
To make ahead: Refrigerate legume mixture (Step 1) for up to 3 days.
