Recipe for Quick and Easy Pantry "Succotash" and Rice

After yesterday’s “Big Eats” veggie dish, it was time to get back to basics.  This is a great stand by when you want something simple or just don’t feel like cooking much but want something tasty and filling.  It isn't a true or conventional succotash as I use edamame instead of lima beans and there is no corn (but you could easily add it in!).

Makes 4 servings, each approximately 145 calories, 2 grams fat, 25 grams carbs, 2 grams fiber, 7.5 grams protein, 4 WW Points+

2 cups cooked brown rice (leftovers or, as I used, steam bag)
1 cup shelled edamame
1 cup canned fire roasted tomatoes with garlic
½ cup canned fire roasted green chiles
1 tsp cumin
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook edamame per package directions.  Warm tomatoes and chiles together.  Season with cumin.  Drain cooked edamame and add to tomato/chile mixture.

Serve veggies with warm rice.

Do you have a quick and easy side dish?
