Friday: Succotash

It was impossible to resist doing a succotash given the contents of the fridge.

Cut some bacon into 1/2cm dice and brown it nicely with a bit of neutral oil. Add onions and garlic and sweat a bit. Add chunks of zucchini and pepper (we had long peppers in the box) and a good pinch of salt, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini are about soft. Add sweet corn (freshly cut off the cob), some diced tomatoes, and some broad beans, cover again, and cook another 5 minutes or so until the corn is read to eat.

Serve with some good bread.

There's not much point with making this unless you have fresh corn, but with the corn it is soooooo good.
