Ingredients

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 onion, chopped

3-4 cloves garlic, chopped

1 red bell pepper, chopped

½ tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

10 oz bag frozen baby lima bean

2 ears corn kernels or 10 oz bag frozen corn

1 cup sliced okra, fresh or frozen

2 cups chicken broth

1 tsp minced ginger – I used the prepared kind in a tube purchased in the produce section of the grocery, grated fresh, or ½ tsp dried would work as well

¼ tsp red pepper flakes

¼ tsp black pepper

Directions

Heat olive oil over low heat in a large pan or Dutch oven.

Add onion, garlic, pepper, salt and sugar.

Cover pan and simmer over low heat stirring occasionally to soften vegetables, about 15 minutes.

Add lima beans, corn, okra, ginger, and pepper.

Pour in chicken broth and stir to combine.

Simmer over low heat for 30 minutes stirring occasionally.

Taste for salt and pepper and serve.

Keep leftovers – it’s also delicious cold!
