There are many variations of succotash, depending on region, but basically succotash is a vegetable stew. There are really no rules to which vegetables to use, just use what you have on hand. This may be the simplest of versions, made simple by the use of frozen mixed vegetable. The mix I used is called vegetable soup mix. It has lima beans, green beans, carrots, corn, and okra. Usually succotash is stewed with a cured meat like ham or bacon, but this version is meat free. I simply sauteed 1 clove of garlic and a half of chopped onion in a bit of olive oil then added about 2 cups of the mix. Add a half cup of water, season with salt and pepper and cook until all the vegetables are tender. Like the sauteed cabbage below, this is great with fried meats like pork chop.
