Purchased some stunning contemporary Fava beans from Birri at Jean-Talon Market!



Grilled them till they have been charred and tender, fastidiously turning them over for about 15-20 min till they have been excellent.


Seasoned them with salt, pinch of chili powder, lemon juice/zest and just a little olive oil.


A easy, scrumptious and nutritious seasonal snack to take pleasure in!


Fava beans aka Broad beans are a incredible supply of protein, fiber-rich complicated carbs, B Nutritional vitamins, iron, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. All podded beans and greens might be grilled! bringing out their pure sugars/ sweetness, and giving them further taste from the high-heat cooking course of. I used a grill pan at residence to organize these, as I don’t have a BBQ, however you may actually use a correct grill as an alternative. Subsequent time you’re BBQ’ing, throw some seasonal favas on the grill, as a change from veggie burgers or canines!


  • Recent fava beans within the pod
  • Lemon, juice and zest
  • Olive oil
  • Chili powder (I used Mexican Chili powder)
  • Salt and cracked black pepper


  1. Merely wash the beans entire.
  2. Place them spaced out in your grill and prepare dinner till they’re mushy on the within, and charred on the surface. Style a bean to ensure it’s tender!
  3. Drizzle just a little olive oil over the beans, and season with salt, cracked black pepper, and a pinch of chili powder.
  4. Zest the lemon and squeeze the contemporary juice over the Favas – for acidity.
  5. Get pleasure from!
