¾ tsp salt, divided
15 oz black beans, rinsed
15 oz hominy (see Shopping Tip), rinsed
6 large portobello mushroom cap, gills removed (see Tip)
1 medium zucchini, cut in half lengthwise
1 small red bell pepper, cut into quarters
2 ears of corn, husked
¼ cup prepared barbecue sauce
2 tsp toasted salted pepitas (optional)
1 tsp smoked paprika
10 oz frozen baby lima beans, cooked according to package directions
6 tsp prepared barbecue sauce
6 tsp toasted salted pepitas (optional)
1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
2. Brush tops of mushrooms caps and both sides of zucchini and bell pepper with oil. Grill along with corn, turning occasionally, until tender and lightly charred on all sides, 5 to 6 minutes for the mushrooms, zucchini and bell pepper and 8 to 10 minutes for the corn.
3. Whisk vinegar, brown sugar, paprika and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large skillet. Add the grilled mushroom caps and turn to coat. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove the pan from the heat. Transfer the mushrooms to a cutting board.
4. Meanwhile, cut corn kernels off the cobs and cut the zucchini and bell peppers into 3/4-inch pieces. Add to the marinade in the pan along with black beans, hominy, lima beans and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Return the pan to medium heat and cook, stirring, until the succotash is heated through, 3 to 5 minutes.
5. Slice the mushroom caps and serve on top of the succotash. Garnish with a dollop of barbecue sauce and pepitas (if using).
Tip: The dark gills found on the underside of a portobello mushroom cap are edible, but can turn a dish an unappealing gray/black color. Remove the gills with a spoon, if desired.
Shopping Tip: Hominy is white or yellow corn that's been treated with lime to remove the tough hull and germ. Canned cooked hominy can be found in the Latin section of large supermarkets”near the beans”or at Latin markets.
