Roasted Corn Succotash
Succotash is the adaptation of a Native American dish originating from the northeast. It's name resembles the pronunciation of "boiled corn kernels" in the Narragansett language. This simple & inexpensive dish was popular in the great depression, and additional ingredients have been added to succotash over time as its popularity spread throughout the country, creating many variations of this delightful recipe.
- 4 ears of corn in their husks
- 1 Tablespoon Extra-Virgin Olive Oil Try Caraluzzi's Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 cup diced zucchini squash
- 1 cup chopped tomato peeled and seeded
- 1 cup cooked lima beans
