Suffering Succotash!

Don't ask me why but I have been into succotash lately.  As a kid, I HATED lima beans but decided to give them a try in a classic succotash recipe.  Low and behold, I really like them.  Maybe my Mom wasn't so crazy after all... This recipe has become a quick addition to our weeknight line-up.

2 tsp of olive oil
1 small onion diced
1 green bell papper diced
3 small zucchini diced
1 cup of thawed lima beans
1/2 cup of thawed frozen corn kernels
1 14oz can of diced tomato
1/2 tsp of salt
1 tsp of Pirate Pepper Blend (a spice blend from Charleston, SC)

Saute onion and pepper in oil with 1/2 the salt and pepper blend.  Once tender, add the zucchini and the rest of the salt and pepper blend.  Add the lima beans, corn, and tomatoes.  Simmer for 5 minutes more.  Enjoy!


  1. sufferin' succotash!
    Hey, Sylvester...I see you got the birdie too!!!!
    The dish reminds me of the Ratatoulle that Janet recently made. (I think I spelled it wrong?)

  2. Looks delicious. Welcome to CEiMB! :)

  3. look pretty tasty could i replace the lima beans with a different bean you think?

  4. Succotash! We were just talking about this today at co-op! Do you think I could get my boys to eat it??:)

  5. That is funny. I've been thinking about succotash too. Who would have thought that would be the recipe to wake all of us up?
    I'm going to a vegan holiday cooking class on Sunday. Thought it would widen my cooking horizons as I tend to stay in my comfort zone. I'll tell you how it goes. p.s. I love lima beans.

  6. I think you could use cannelini beans but you really should man up and use the lima beans! ;)
