Tasty Tidbit - Char-Grilled Fava Beans

This has to be my favorite way of eating Fava beans. In a large bowl, toss the pods in a bit of olive oil, fresh cracked pepper and coarse salt. Grill covered for 5 - 8 minutes on medium heat until the pods are nicely charred and the beans inside are tender. As you peel the hot skins, your fingers pick up bits of salt and tons of flavor as you pop the smokey...nutty...buttery beans into your mouth. It's finger licking great!
