Whether you’re cooking with fresh vegetables or using frozen veggies instead, here’s everything you need to know about making this nutritious side dish!
Ingredients Needed For Air Fryer Succotash
- Corn Kernels: You can use either fresh or frozen corn. If you are using canned corn, make sure to drain the corn first.
- Lima Beans: A great place to use canned or frozen lima beans. If you want to use frozen lima beans, do not defrost them first.
- Tomatoes: I used diced canned tomatoes. Another great option is to use diced cherry tomatoes.
- Onions: Diced onions provide a lot of flavor to this recipe. You can even substitute red onions for regular onions.
- Bacon: This is a great place to add a lot of flavors. As the bacon cooks, the bacon fat will season the vegetables, roasting them perfectly.
- Olive Oil: I used this high heat oil to perfectly roast the vegetables in the air fryer. Any other high heat oil, such as avocado oil, grapeseed oil, or even coconut oil, would work.
- Seasonings: Salt, Black, and Basil (dried), you can also use Creole or Cajun Seasoning to this dish.
