Grilled Fava Bean Pods with Chile and Lemon
"Trust me," says A16's chef Nate Appleman about this unorthodox recipe. He quickly grills whole fava beans, tosses them with a crushed red pepper dressing and serves them hot. They can be eaten whole--the tender pods develop a lovely charred flavor on the grill--but it's also easy to eat them in the traditional way by popping the beans out of their pods and outer skins.
