Succotash Soup

Servings 6 people


  • 1 1/2 cups dried baby Lima beans sorted, rinsed and soaked overnight
  • 2 cans low sodium chicken broth 14.5-oz.
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 small red bell pepper de-seeded, de-ribbed and chopped
  • 1 medium stalk celery chopped
  • 4 green onions chopped
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 dash crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 can diced tomatoes drained, 14.5-oz.
  • 10 ounces frozen whole kernel corn


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Sort, rinse, and soak beans overnight.
  • Drain, rinse and drain sorted and soaked beans and place them in a slow cooker with the broth and water.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or on HIGH for 5 to 7 hours. (NOTE: If beans take longer to cook, it could be because they are old.) Thirty minutes before serving, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add onion, bell pepper and celery and sauté for 2 minutes; add green onions and sauté for 1 minute; add to bean mixture along with remaining ingredients (thyme through corn).
  • Cover and cook on HIGH while you prepare the rest of the dinner.
