    AppleAnnie's Note:

    I just stumbled upon this creation in the kitchen just a bit ago, and I am feeling nice and satisfied right about now. Mmmm! It was yummy. I call it "Faux" because instead of traditional lima beans and corn, I used edamame beans and corn with a can of diced tomatoes and lots of spices. This is a healthy, lowfat, nutritious vegetarian meal that is sure to please, even the meat lovers.

    faux succotash

    Whole wheat couscous


    1. 1
      Faux Succotash:.
    2. 2
      Place all ingredients into a large skillet, except the flax seed. I salted a bit during cooking and then again at the end, to my taste.
    3. 3
      Cook all of the ingredients on medium/high heat until the tomatoes and juice from them cooks down. Approximately 10- 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      About 1-2 minutes before this was finished, I added the flax seed (this preserves the nutritional value).
    5. 5
    6. 6
      While Succotash is simmering, prepare the couscous. (*note- refer to instructions on box and make sure measurements go along with what this recipe says).
    7. 7
      In a medium sauce pan add 1 1/2 cup of water, 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, and the bullion cube. Bring to a boil. As the water heats, stir and make sure the bullion cube fully dissolves (smashing with spoon if necessary).
    8. 8
      When water reaches a boil, add cooking wine and turn heat off.
    9. 9
      Add couscous, stirring immediately and remove from heat.
    10. 10
      Cover with lid and let sit for 5 minutes.
    11. 11
      Now, sprinkle the dash of oregano and paprika and fluff with a fork.
    12. 12
      Serve Succotash on top of the couscous and garnish with Parmesan cheese (I prefer shredded).
    13. 13
      Voila! Tasty and nutrition meal in no time (plus the fact that it's cheap to make definitely scores points with us!).

      I was looking for something to go with my marinated chicken breast and found this recipe, as i had edamame and couscous i thought i would try it. It was very good. the only thing i did different was i left out the wine in the couscous. i also didnt have canned tomatoes so i used 3 medium sized fresh and to juice them up i used 1/8 cup of bloody mary mix.. ;) it gave it a little celery bite and was great. i will make again
