Edamame Succotash

Edamame Succotash


Green soybeans, called edamame, have a sweet. nutty flavor. Standing in for the traditional lima beans, they offer a great variation on this classic dish. Edamame are available frozen and fresh, in the pod and shelled.

Look for them in large supermarkets, natural-food stores or Asian markets. For a great twist, serve the succotash in hollowed-out tomatoes. If you're using frozen edamame, prepare them first according to package directions, omitting any salt, and drain well.

1 Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add bell pepper, onion and garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, 2 minutes. Stir in corn, edam arne and wine; cook 4 minutes, stirring frequently.

2 Remove skillet from heat. Stir in parsley, basil, salt and pepper. Serve warm.
