Fresh green soybeans, called edamame or sweet beans, are a great addition to this classic American dish, where they stand in for the traditional lima beans. The succotash is wonderful as it is or topped with grilled shrimp, salmon or chicken. Source: EatingWell Magazine, Summer 2004

Ingredients

Directions

  • Cook edamame in a large saucepan of lightly salted water until tender, about 4 minutes or according to package directions. Drain well.

  • Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add bell pepper, onion and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables start to soften, about 2 minutes. Stir in corn, wine (or water) and the edamame; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in vinegar, parsley, basil, salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

Ingredient Note: Edamame are easy to digest and are exceptionally high in protein (1/2 cup has 16 grams). There are several kinds available today--frozen and fresh, in the pod and shelled--in large supermarkets, natural-foods stores or Asian markets.

I added fresh cilantro. I didn't have fresh red pepper so I used unthawed coloured peppers and white balsamic vinegar glaze as I didn't have rice vinegar. It is sooo good. I will definitely be taking to our Vegan Potluck. Read More

Even better as a salad! We eat it at room temp or cold as a salad - better flavor than eating it warm. Read More
