Sweet Corn succotash with edamame. With fresh sweet corn, sweet red bell pepper, rice wine vinegar, and basil, this is “sufferin’ succotash’ delicious.
If you’re a member of my generation, you grew up watching animated cartoons created in the 50’s and 60’s, and you’re either a Disney fan or a Warner Bros. fan. I happen to be a die-hard Warner Bros. Looney Toons fan. I love watching large Acme products fall from the sky and crush Wile E. Coyote, and Yosemite Sam transporting himself in mid-air to get in front of his mule then beat it over the head with a club to get it to stop running. “Whoa I said…WHOA!”
And who can forget Elmer Fudd telling us “Shhh. Be vewy vewy quiet, I’m hunting wabbits,” then blasting his gun at a smug Bugs Bunny. But it wasn’t all about violence, remember Foghorn Leghorn, our endearing original Family Guy. I loved that rooster and his nemesis the barn yard dog. So you probably know where I’m going with this. That’s right, I can’t think about succotash without a visual of Sylvester the Cat spitting out the words “sufferin’ succotash”. I’m sure we all have our favorite Looney Toons memories.
I think I’ve made succotash, the lima bean version once in my life. I liked it, but it’s not one of those things that’s on my radar, or my “go-to” side dish. Now that it’s Summer, and grilling simply seasoned meats are a breeze, I’m focusing more on side dishes.
With sweet bell pepper, rice wine vinegar and basil, this corn succotash with edamame version is “sufferin’ succotash” good. I think it would be good with grilled shrimp on top. This one is compliments of Eating Well. Let’s take a look.
