Seasonal Succotash

Serves 6

Serving size: 2/3 cup



3 cups green beans, trimmed & cut

¾ teaspoon salt

2 cups corn kernels (can use frozen)

2 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon butter

2 small fall squash, cut into ½ inch pieces

¼ teaspoon black pepper

2 green onion, finely chopped



  1. Place beans in a large saucepan, add enough water to cover.  Add ½ teaspoon salt and bring to a boil.  Cover, reduce to simmer and cook until beans are tender, about 20-30 minutes.
  2. When the beans are done, drain liquid, but keep for later.
  3. Heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the corn and stir well.  Add squash, beans, 2 tablespoon bean cooking liquid—stir occasionally until corn and squash are tender, about 8-12 minutes.  Add more bean cooking liquid if necessary.
  4. Season with remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper.  Serve hot over brown rice.
