Suffering for succotash

I am looking for a good recipe for succotash. I thought the colors and corn theme would be good for Thanksgiving. I will also be making it ahead of time and transporting to MIL's house. Thanks

  1. I too am ooking for a good recipe...but I am going to riff off of trader joes and do edaname and corn for soycatosh

    1. I never really use a recipe for mine. Just cook your limas and your corn then saute together with a good amount of high quality butter, some salt and pepper and maybe serve some hot sauce at the table. Lets the flavor of the veggies stand out...

      1. I also don't have a recipe, but I use soy beans. You can buy them shelled and ready to go at Trader Joes, and they make an excellent substitute for the limas. I also add finely diced red pepper, red onion, and red pepper flakes. Also, at the end, maybe a dash of cream.

        1. Was looking for exactly that last night. Came up with this recipe from Laurie Colwin

          and this variation (using frozen veggies) that Amuse Bouches posted last year.

          There was also this on Epicurious

          that appealed to me because of the pearl onions. Thought I might like that addition and figured I'd substitute limas for the zucchini. But my goodness, that's a lot of cream. Decided to go for the Colwin variation. Sounds just right.

          1. I saute some bacon and add (this time of year) frozen corn and BABY lima beans and just a tiny bit of water (just so they don't stick, not enough for them to boil)and cook until tender, stirring occasionally and then add salt to taste and lots of black pepper.
