Mediterranean Succotash

 I love succotash because it is so easy to make, and pretty quick too. Recently I altered my traditional succotash recipe to a more Mediterranean-themed dish. It was great! Here's what I did:

  • 1 package frozen artichoke hearts 
  • 1 can of cannelini beans
  • 1 package frozen corn
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes 
  • 3/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 3 Tbsp fresh chopped basil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  1. Briefly rinse the frozen vegetables and can of beans.
  2. Mince the garlic clove. Using about 1 Tbsp of oil from the sun dried tomatoes, heat the olive oil and garlic in a large saute pan. (Using the jarred oil helps add that Mediterranean flavor, but if you are using packaged sun-dried tomatoes not in oil- rather than the jarred in oil kind- you could always use regular olive oil and add extra spices).
  3. Add the artichoke hearts and corn, and cover for about 5 min on medium heat to thaw. 
  4. Add the beans and tomatoes, and simmer for about 10 additional minutes until well heated.
  5. Add salt & pepper to taste, and just prior to serving, sprinkle with fresh basil.

 Great for leftovers too!
