1 pound very fresh fava beans in the pods, rinsed
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 scallion, thinly sliced crosswise
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper or
Chinese chile sauce
Lemon wedges, for serving
Light a grill.
In a large bowl, toss the fava bean pods with the olive oil.
Grill the favas over high heat for about 5 minutes, turning occasionally, until the pods are softened and charred in spots.
Return the beans to the bowl and toss with the sliced scallion, crushed red pepper and salt.
Transfer to a platter and serve with lemon wedges.
