Edamame Succotash

Well, so much for posting every day. I have one more Labor Day recipe but I got a little distracted over the weekend. I was thinking about skipping this one but it was Kay's favorite (besides dessert!) so I have to post it.

My mom found this recipe. I think it came out of one of her magazines but I'm not sure. The whole idea behind making this was originally that I had received fresh edamame from the farm. In the end, we chose to eat those as snacks and use frozen in this recipe instead.

Edamame Succotash
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 cups frozen corn
2 cups edamame (I used frozen)
1/4 cup chopped roasted red pepper
1/4 cup sour cream (I used soy)
salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook 2-3 minutes until softened but not browned. Add the corn and edamame. Cook until heated through. Stir in the peppers, sour cream and seasoning. Serve warm.

Kay: I like corn and edamame and I really liked the sauce on this. The second day wasn't so good when we had to warm it up because the edamame dried out.

Mom (Dana): I'm not a big fan of succotash but this was pretty good. It would have been really good with fresh corn because there would have been some sweetness.

I didn't even know Succotash was a real thing, never mind that it didn't have to be sufferin'!

What on earth is Edamame?

Edamame is the new fancy schmancy name they've come up with for soy beans. They remind me of peanuts for some reason.

Succotash is usually made with lima beans. I think it is a southern US kind of recipe but I'm not sure.

The phrase sufferin succotash probably comes from kids suffering through those lima beans!!

I like dark chocolate covered edamame!
