Split Pea Dip

1 cup dried split peas
2 cups water
2 tsp. dried oregano
2 bay leaves
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

Combine peas, water, oregano and bay leaves in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 45 minutes or until tender, then drain and discard bay leaves. Place pea mixture in a food processor and process until smooth, add vinegar, olive oil, garlic, olives and salt and pepper to taste. Process briefly just enough to mix. Chill for a couple of hours and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with pita bread.

The Skinny: Not much room for improvement here.
