Summer Succotash Recipe

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon hot Spanish smoked paprika (pimentón picante)
1 anchovy fillet (optional)
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 cups fresh lima beans
1/2 cup water
1 large zucchini, trimmed and cut in half lengthwise, then crosswise into 1/2-inch slices
2 large tomatoes, cored, then chopped, with their juices
Kernels from 2 ears of fresh corn
Kosher or sea salt
8 large basil leaves, stacked, rolled and cut crosswise into thin slices

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the oil starts to shimmer, add the crushed red pepper flakes and smoked paprika; stir and let sizzle for a few seconds, then add the anchovy, onion, and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onion and garlic are tender.
