Weight Watchers Succotash

This house certainly isn't a Weight Watchers house, as you can see from the other recipes I've posted, but there are some really good recipes in their cookbook. I find myself incorporating these recipes into our meals quite often. One that I like a lot, particularly during the summer months is their Zucchini and Lima-bean Succotash. It can be served hot or cold. I find that my husband and I like it better hot, while our children like it better cold. But everyone will pretty much eat it any way it's served.

What you will need:

  • 1 10 oz. box of frozen lima beans, thawed and cooked with package directions
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped (although a yellow onion will work just as well)
  • 1 medium sized zucchini
  • 2 small tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cups of fresh or thawed corn
  • 1 1/2 tsp of fresh thyme (1 tsp if from a spice rack)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  1. Cook your lima beans, drain them, and set them aside
  2. Heat the olive oil, add the onions, and saute for 4 minutes
  3. Add the zucchini and tomato and cook for 3 minutes
  4. Add everything else and cook through until hot.
I can't think of any other way to describe what this tastes like other than to say it's like a garden in your mouth, especially if you used fresh veggies. It's really good with pork chops or baked chicken.

(Sorry for the fuzzy picture quality. I was holding a six-year-old on my hip.)
