Asian Succotash

Asian Succotash from Weelicious

As we head into summer I await the peak season for two of my favorite vegetables_ fresh corn on the cob and sweet red bell peppers. Luckily, my kids love them too. Whatever I buy never goes to waste.

Speaking of corn and peppers, growing up I ate a traditional version of succotash made with milk and the addition of lima beans. I liked it okay, but didn't exactly love it. I thought it would be fun to give succotash another try by incorporating a little Asian twist. A touch of sesame oil, edamame and soy we're getting somewhere!

This dish holds up really well in the fridge for a few days, as well as on a picnic! With the warmer temps we've been having, the kids and I went to the park for a picnic recently. We took along this Asian Succotash, Mini Babybel Cheese, apples, and water to stay hydrated. It was such a fun and healthy picnic family snack time.

Asian Succotash is such an easy vegetarian side dish. It's full of bright flavors and big flavors while using only 5 ingredients. And when I say it only takes minutes to make for a week night meal, I mean it -- minutes. No sufferin' with this succotash!

    This looks great. You don't have to cook and cool the frozen corn or the frozen edamame? Thanks.

      The frozen corn and edamame are both fully cooked! So you only have to defrost :)

    I am always looking for foods I can freeze then pop into the lunch box for daycare. Will this recipe freeze well?

      You can reduce the soy sauce and salt to taste!
