Just the beans inside. The pods are too tough and bitter at that size. Although they might be tasty if you pick them young.
From my experience with my husband's vegetable garden, there's a 0.2 millisecond window between the beans not being ripe for picking and the pods being too tough for my taste. My husband likes them, though, so I boil the living daylights out of the suckers (the beans, not my husband, at least not most days) and drown them in gravy.

Ever had broad beans? Very yummy.
