Grilled Fava Beans- with Mint, Lemon & Sumac, a simple, easy way to prepare fresh fava beans on the grill with Middle Eastern flavors. Vegan and Gluten-free!
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Toss fava beans with a little drizzle of olive oil, just enough to coat, and sprinkle generously with salt.
Grill each side until deep grill marks apear ( 4-5 minutes, each side) covering grill. Try a tester and make sure inner bean is tender.
Spread out on a platter, spoon dressing over top. Sprinkle with fresh mint and parsley and aleppo chili flakes. Taste one for salt. ( I ususally add extra finishing salt.)
If you like a little more lemon flavor, give them a squeeze of lemon.
Eat like you would edamame, with your fingers, scraping out the beans with your teeth.
Very hands-on. 🙂
With younger smaller fava bean pods, you find the outer pods edible and tasty! Good fiber.
