Edamame & Sweet Corn Succotash-

If you read my blog, you already know I LOVE edamame. Something you might not know is how much I love watching Paula Dean and her Southern cooking shows. Too bad all the good things in life have to be bad for you right? Well, not the case for this yummy Southern dish with a twist.

Making the simple substitution of edamame for lime beans will not only make all the lima bean haters happy, it will also give a huge boost to the protein content and amino acid profile in this dish; Great for building lean muscle! This is one Southern dish you can feel great about eating.
