Simple Edamame Succotash Recipe

Updated on April 18, 2013
Cast your vote for Edamame Succotash

Succotash had its origins during the Great Depression, with readily available ingredients, traditionally made with corn and lima beans. This recipe has been tweaked slightly by the substitution of edamame, to pack a nutritional punch. Rich in the B vitamin folate, and protein, this succotash screams healthy.

Frozen corn and edamame are readily available at most grocery stores, which makes this very easy to assemble. If you can find edamame out of the pod, it is much easier. But if not, just heat the pods in the microwave until warm, and squeeze the beans out into a bowl.

I like to use different color peppers for this recipe for visual effect. It is a vibrant, colorful dish once assembled! I love cilantro, so that was my herb of choice. I like to pick the leaves off and leave them whole, in case there are cilantrophobes in the crowd. Those are the people who claim cilantro tastes like soap! Parsley and basil are great substitutions.

Use a splash of your favorite Italian salad dressing to finish it off. I use a lemon garlic vinaigrette that my family is addicted to!

The finished product is visually appealing, and is family friendly, as the corn sweetens the dish to please most children's palates. Enjoy!
