A Girl & Her Food: grilled whole fava beans


grilled whole fava beans


2 lbs of fava beans, rinsed
3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
One lemon, halved
Sea Salt and Fresh ground pepper to taste


Preheat your grill to medium high heat. In a large bowl, toss the fava beans with olive oil and season to taste with salt and fresh ground pepper.  Make sure the fava beans are coated evenly.

Transfer the fava beans and lemon directly on the grates of the grill and cook, turning occasionally, about 5-6 minutes per side or until charred.  Remove from grill and put the fava beans on a serving dish. Squeeze the grilled lemon onto the fava beans.  Pop the beans out of shells directly in your mouth like you would eat edamame. Enjoy!
