Charred Peas and Green Beans

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.
