Recipes & Produce Tips

Spring Succotash


  • 4-5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups shucked and shelled fava beans* (can substitute fresh or frozen lima beans or peas)
  • 2 cups corn (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 diced carrots
  • 2-3 chopped spring onions
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint or parsley
  • Juice of a lemon
  • Salt to taste

* To get 2 cups of shelled fava beans, start with 3 lbs of whole fava beans. Working over a large bowl, remove the outer shell by bending a pod near one of the beans, cracking the pod and then squeezing the bean with your fingers to shoot it into the bowl. Once you have filled your bowl, take the beans and boil them in salted water for 5 minutes. Shock them in ice water to preserve their bright green color. Then peel off the outer peel of the bean.
