Post Holiday Cooking

The remnants of Christmas are still lingering.

A box of decorations is sitting by the stairs, waiting to be packed away in the attic.

A Christmas nut roll, half-eaten, is waiting on the counter to be devoured.

And then there's that penguin-shaped hand-soap I can't bear to pack away yet. He has a bell on his Santa hat for crying out loud! Who doesn't want to look at something that cute when you're washing up for dinner?

While the holiday baking has been a blast, my body is begging for some vege-head normalcy, so yesterday we enjoyed a huge bowl of Edamame Succotash for dinner. I absolutely love this stuff. My mother-in-law first made it for us during a visit in July, and I've made a repeat creation several times since. It makes an awesome after-work snack, too :)

Edamame succotash makes a great side dish, or you can enjoy it as a main course as we did (we ate a dish of stir-fried carrots and bell pepper on the side. Talk about a vegan delight!).

Enjoying any fun eats during this post-holiday week?

Edamame Succotash

  • 1 bag (1 lb.) of frozen edamame, thawed
  • 1 bag (1 lb.) of frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced
  • salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Consume copious amounts, guilt-free :)


  1. mmm edamame is one of my all time favorite snacks =)

  2. My body needs a little normalcy too, but I keep putting it off until New Years...there are still too many treats leftover at my house :) I hope you had a great Christmas and are still enjoying the holiday season :)

  3. Oh how I LOVE edamame!!! I've never made edamame succotash and it sounds incredible. I must make this soon.

    By the way, keep the penguin! hehe :)

  4. Quick and Healthy. I can use more of that in my life!

  5. I haven't had edamame in a while and this dish just triggered a craving for it! It looks delicious, I could easily have two bowls of this to myself!

  6. I am happy to find this very useful for me, as it contains lot of information. I always prefer to read the quality content

  7. Sufferin' succotash! (sorry, can't help it!) I've also been craving things that have grown from the earth after so many sugar-loaded treats. I love how simple this is!

  8. I agree that while the holidays bring lots of great's a great feeling to get back to normalcy (although I can't take down my xmas decor quite yet!!)

  9. i love edamame and this combo sounds great!

  10. It's always kind of sad to put away all the Christmas stuff, but in a way it's always a good feeling when life slows down and the cookie tray gets put away haha.
