This is a play on the classic Succotash recipe from The Health Cooking Blog! the creator of the Eating Well Through Cancer Cookbook that we used in last months cooking class.
To create this super simple dish you will need-
A few notes on the ingredients:
The okra can be fresh and cut up or purchased frozen and already cut. I used fresh okra when I made this recipe and put it on a sheet pan at 400F for about 10 minutes while I was preparing the rest of the meal. This decreased the cooking time on the stove!
I bought canned corn, so I just used the whole can rather than just 1 cup (to not be wasteful). But, if you are using fresh or frozen, using only 1 cup is less wasteful!
I could only find dried navy beans at the store, and then I forgot to soak the beans prior to wanting to make this recipe. So, I ended up using canned Great Northern Beans I had in my pantry! Necessity is the Mother of Invention, right?? And I think the larger beans were quite good in this recipe. But, if you have an Instant Pot you don’t have to soak beans before cooking them.

- Try roasting the okra at 400F for 10-30 minutes before adding to the skillet to add a crispier texture.
- Try different seasonings – garlic, chili powder, cajun style seasoning, etc.
