I am totally weird in that often times I really like (almost prefer) burnt/crispy things. So when I saw nearly burnt beans in month’s BA Mag I knew I had to replicate them. I haven’t got a clue what the magazine actually said to do though. Instead of reading it I got really excited and went to picked some peas from the garden and luckily, I had grabbed some green beans from the farmers market the Sunday prior which were still in the fridge. I was set… except for the whole (in)ability to BBQ thing… So admittedly, I initially did not make these on the BBQ but I did discover that the cast iron pan I have works wonders! Yes, yes… maybe one day I’ll BBQ. Anyways, these little pockets of goodness are most importantly, a healthy snack and one that you can’t stop munching on. You really can add any flavors you want, my suggestion is below.
- 30 green beans
- 30 peas (in their pods)
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 - 2 tablespoons crushed chillies (depending on how spicy you want them)
- Sea salt to taste
- Coat peas and green beans in olive oil, half of the crushed chillies and half of the sea salt.
- BBQ (or using a cast iron dish over the stove) on high for 5-10 minutes flipping once, until peas and beans are charred.
- Remove from BBQ (or cast iron dish) and toss with remaining chillies and sea salt.
- Serve warm.
