I love and live for vegetables.

Not just because I am vegan.

I crave the taste and this end of summer succotash is one of my personal faves.

It has a little bit of everything that I love and the flavors are delicious.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 1/2 cups shelled lima beans
  • 5 squash blossoms
  • 1 small spring onion, diced
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 cups zucchini, quartered and sliced
  • 1 cup freshly shucked corn kernels
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 1 drop of Basil essential oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 drops of Lemon essential oil
  • 2 drops of Cilantro essential oil
  • Himalayan sea salt and black pepper to taste

Here’s what you have to do:

Grill all veggies lightly.

Toss them in 1 tsbp of coconut oil mixed with essential oils and lemon juice.

Serve and Enjoy!

P.S.  I use essential oils in my recipes because they have many therapeutic benefits and help improve your overall health.

Check it out:

Lemon essential oil is cleansing, help with detoxification, purification, immune support and the aids the lymphatic system. It’s also a mood elevator.
