Succotash is an American Indian dish, hailing from New England, that was highly popular during the Great Depression because of its affordable ingredients and filling nature. Sometimes it was baked like a casserole or as a pot pie. This version is made with fresh corn, lima beans, soybeans, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, margarine, shallots, garlic, thyme, chives with some marinated smoked tofu.

Succotash [Vegan]



Cook Time



  • 3 ears of corn, boiled and cut off the cob
  • 7 ounces extra firm, smoked tofu, cubed and marinated in soy sauce and liquid smoke
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 5 -6 shallots, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 pound  lima beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 pound soybeans
  • 1 orange bell pepper, roughly chopped
  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced and quartered
  • 8 ounces cherry tomatoes, halved
  • A splash or two of white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable stock powder
  • A handful of finely chopped, fresh thyme
  • A handful of finely chopped, fresh chives
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Marinate the tofu in about 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 1 tablespoon liquid smoke.
  2. Fill a large pot of water, and start to boil.
  3. While you’re waiting for the water to boil, melt the butter in a large, deep frying pan and add the shallots and garlic.
  4. After a few minutes, when the shallots have softened, add the beans and pepper, stir and cook for a few more minutes before adding the remaining ingredients (apart from the tofu). Reduce the heat.
  5. Add the corn to the boiling water and boil for 10 minutes.
  6. Drain the marinade from the tofu and fry in a separate frying pan on medium high heat, until they get some color and/or a little crispy on the surface.
  7. Remove the corn from the water, use an oven mitt to hold each ear, and carefully cut the kernels off the cob. Add the corn and fresh herbs to the vegetable mix and stir.
  8. Serve the succotash, topped with the smoked tofu as a main dish, part of a buffet or, optionally along with some boiled potatoes.





Veganized traditional dishes and desserts from all across the globe and new, exciting culinary creations. Hi, I’m Chris, the guy behind Planticize. After being vegetarian for nearly 20 years, I finally went vegan in 2014! I enjoy eating, cooking, photography and travel. I’ve lived in three different countries, so my tastes are pretty eclectic. I love to planticize traditional dishes and create new and exciting ones, too! I think that going plant-based is the best for everyone and everything, and I strive to make food that looks and tastes great!
