Skillet Succotash, with its beans and corn, makes a great side dish for tailgating, picnics or the fall season.


  • 1 pound (1 cup) of fresh fava beans, shelled
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 4 cups of fresh corn kernels (cut from 4 ears of corn)
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 2 small garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced


  1. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil, and blanch the fava beans for about 2 minutes.
  2. Rinse the beans in cold water and peel off the green skins. Set beans to the side.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the oil. Add the corn, onion, garlic and salt, and cook (stirring often) until the vegetables are slightly charred and golden (about 7 minutes).
  4. Add the bell pepper and fava beans to the corn mixture and cook for about 2 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the heat and add the scallion and toss together.
  5. Serve warm as a side dish.
