Edamame Succotash

succotashOne of the worst questions a coworker can ask you is “What size t-shirt do you wear?” It’s an awful question because it is so immensely personal, but also because it means that at some point soon you will be wearing a staff t-shirt. My husband loves free t-shirts. I do not.

The best response I got after I sheepishly admitted Large is “Really? You’re not a medium?!” Thank you Amy K. for making my day. This comment was made while I was eating today’s recipe for Edamame Succatosh, which is why I share it with you now! It comes from Vegetarian Times and makes for a nice twist on the traditional lima bean succotash. My version is a flavorful no-cook vegan dish that features fresh herbs and sweet yellow peppers which provide a bright crunch to the nutty edamame. It tastes great with a cup of pasta for a cold pasta salad.
