Edamame Succotash

Edamame or Soy Bean Succotash has a great texture that is perfect on the side of most meals. I love the creaminess, peppers, onion and corn.

Edamame Succotash is wonderful when paired with grilled meat. The sautéed green onions and green pepper really make this dish sing with flavor. You can make this dish with any peppers you like. If you want more color add red pepper. I like a little more spice so I add a jalapeno pepper. 

This side dish can easily replace a potato or starch in your meal. Edamame is packed full of fiber, protein, magnesium, folate, vitamin K1, and more. I consider this soy bean a super food. I try to cook with it a few times a month.

I typically cook a meat and have this dish as my side. I will also make a small side salad. I love Edamame Succotash in the summer. It is so simple and quick. 

Cost Per Serving $3.60 as of April 2023

If you have zero ingredients then this recipe will cost about $14.39.

If you have a fully stocked pantry this recipe will cost about $8.65. 

  • The cost per serving is reduced to $2.16.

I do not include salt and pepper in the cost of this recipe. 

Looking at the numbers this seems like an expensive side dish but you buy enough ingredients to make this dish two times. If you want to change it up, substitute the Italian Seasoning for a different seasoning.

Creamy Coleslaw

Creamy Coleslaw pairs well with any grilled meat or fried fish. The mixture of sour cream and mayo is better than just mayo on its own.
