Grilled Peas Recipe BBQ Side Dish

Grilled peas and broad beans with minted yogurt sauce

  • serves 8-10 sharing
  • Easy

This is a great side dish to have on hand for a summer barbecue. The slightly charred flavour works really well with the fresh, sweet peas and the tangy yogurt sauce



  • fresh peas in their pods 400g (as young as possible) 
  • broad beans in their pods 400g
  • oil
  • natural yogurt 300g
  • clear honey 1/2 tbsp
  • tahini 1/2 tbsp
  • lemon juice 1 tbsp
  • extra-virgin olive oil 1 tbsp
  • mint leaves finely chopped to make 2 tbsp
  • garlic 1 clove, crushed


  • Step 1

    Combine all the ingredients for the yogurt sauce and keep it cool until you need it. If you make it a few hours ahead, add the mint just before you serve it.

  • Step 2

    Pick through your peas and broad beans and discard any bad ones. Toss the peas and beans in their pods in a little oil and char them over a hot barbecue for 3-5 minutes, until bright green and charred in parts. The peas and beans will have steamed inside their pods. Dip them in the sauce and eat in their pods (if the peas are very young), or pop them out, and douse them in the sauce.
