Prep Time: 15
Cook Time: 10
Total Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 4 1x


  • 20–30 fresh Fava beans (in the pod)
  • olive oil to coat
  • generous pinch salt


  • 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


  • 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


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Toss fava beans with a little drizzle of olive oil, just enough to coat, and sprinkle generously with salt.
  3. Grill each side until deep grill marks appear (4-5 minutes, each side) covering grill. Try a tester and make sure inner bean is tender.
  4. Spread out on a platter, spoon dressing over top. Sprinkle with fresh mint and parsley and chili flakes. Taste one for salt. (I usually 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.
