Put another Fava on the barbie


Though this certainly wasn't the first barbeque worthy evening we've had this year, I finally dusted the gas grill off and grilled some corn and fava beans. Fava beans are great prepared this way - just toss them in a little oil and salt and throw on the grill till they start getting nice and charred. Then you open the pods and eat the beans like edamame. Yum! I'm the only vegetarian in the house, but since I bought the grill it's veggies only. And the occasional peach. Pretty much any vegetable tastes better grilled, so does a lot of fruit. You should try it.

I bought one of those pans this year, and I agree - everything tastes better grilled in it. I was surprised at how tasty the sugar snap peas were.
