Herbed Corn & Edamame Succotash

From: EatingWell

Fresh green soybeans, called edamame or sweet beans, are a great addition to this classic American dish, where they stand in for the traditional lima beans. The succotash is wonderful as it is or topped with grilled shrimp, salmon or chicken.

Ingredients
1 1/2 cups  frozen or fresh shelled edamame, (see Ingredient Note)
1 tablespoon  canola oil
1/2 cup  chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup  chopped onion
2 cloves  garlic, minced
2 cups  fresh corn kernels, (from 4 ears)
3 tablespoons  dry white wine, or water
2 tablespoons  rice vinegar
2 tablespoons  chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons  chopped fresh basil, or 1 teaspoon dried
1/2 teaspoon  salt
  Freshly ground pepper, to taste
Directions
1. Cook edamame in a large saucepan of lightly salted water until tender, about 4 minutes or according to package directions. Drain well.
2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add bell pepper, onion and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables start to soften, about 2 minutes. Stir in corn, wine (or water) and the edamame; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in vinegar, parsley, basil, salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
Tips:
Ingredient Note: Edamame are easy to digest and are exceptionally high in protein (1/2 cup has 16 grams). There are several kinds available today--frozen and fresh, in the pod and shelled--in large supermarkets, natural-foods stores or Asian markets.
MAKE AHEAD TIP: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

It's ok, I thought it was a little bland. But my parents loved it!
