Why I Love This Recipe

Recipe courtesy of Roberta Larson Duyff, MS, RD, FADA, CFCS, in Cooking Healthy Across America. As a traditional American favorite, succotash is typically a cooked dish made with lima beans, corn kernels and chopped red and green peppers. Although lima beans are used in New England and generally define a succotash, this version is special for its fiber-rich canned soybeans, lending it a Midwestern flavor.


Ingredients You'll Need

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can (15 ounces) soybeans, drained or 1 1/2 cups cooked edamame
1 can (15 ounces) corn, drained
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/3 cup chopped cilantro


Directions

Rest time: 1 to 4 hours


Preparation:


Combine the balsamic and cider vinegars, brown sugar, cumin, onion powder and garlic in a 1- to 1 1/2-quart saucepan. Heat over medium heat about 3 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Place the soybeans, corn and red bell pepper in a medium-size bowl. Pour the vinegar mixture over the vegetables and stir to mix. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 4 hours or until chilled, stirring once. Stir in the cilantro just before serving. Serve chilled.
