Description

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!


Ingredients

  • 2030 fresh Fava beans ( in the pod)
  • olive oil to coat
  • generous pinch salt

Dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced – use a garlic press!
  • 1 tablespoon shallot, finely chopped (optional)
  • zest from one medium lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sumac

Garnish:

  • 1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Italian Parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon aleppo chili ( or regular chili flakes ) optional
  • squeeze of lemon, optional

Instructions

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. 🙂


Notes

With younger smaller fava bean pods, you find the outer pods edible and tasty! Good fiber.
