Eats | Grilled Fresh Fava Beans

Fava beans aka Broad beans are a fantastic source of protein, fiber-rich complex carbs, B Vitamins, iron, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. All podded beans and vegetables can be grilled! bringing out their natural sugars/ sweetness, and giving them extra flavor from the high-heat cooking process. I used a grill pan at home to prepare these, as I don’t have a BBQ, but you can certainly use a proper grill instead. Next time you’re BBQ’ing, throw some seasonal favas on the grill, as a change from veggie burgers or dogs!


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