Sweetheart Succotash

Since we're so close to valentines, and my valentine isn't too fond of his veggies, I'm always looking for a nice preparation that is delicious and nutritious. As a veggie, I dont add bacon, but I do add some smoky flavors with a dash of 'bacon salt' and a little bit of smoked paprika. The mixture contained some beetroot, and mixed with some creamy greek yoghurt turning it a valentine pink.

This is a very adaptable recipe, one could add green beans, lima beans instead of edamame or any number of mixtures. I like the creamyness of the greek yoghurt and smokiness from the paprika and the bacon salt.

I served these with trader joes soy nuggets and I'd say save yourself a trip, they are really grim.

Sweetheart Succotash
1tbsp Butter
1/4 cup sundried tomatoes in olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped finely
2 cups cooked beetroot (I microwaved them for a total of about 4 mins)
1 cup cooked diced carrots
2/3 cup edamame
1 1/2 cups sweetcorn (I used a mix of regular and the trader joes smoky sweetcorn)
1 cup chopped sugar snap peas
1 veggie oxo cube (dry veg boullion cube)
1 tsp smoked paprika
red pepper flakes
pepper
bacon salt
1/2 cup greek yoghurt

Sautee the onions with the butter and sundried tomatoes until cooked. Add all the other ingredients except for the greek yoghurt and stir until heated through. Stir in greek yoghurt and serve.
