2 slices vegan bacon (I recommend Smart Bacon for this recipe)
1 tablespoon vegan butter (I use Earth Balance)
2 cups chopped sweet onion
2 cups fresh corn kernels (about 3 ears)
1 (16-ounce) bag frozen, shelled edamame, thawed
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon sugar
3 plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped
3 tablespoons torn basil
Cook bacon in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, reserving any drippings in pan; coarsely chop bacon.
Increase the heat to medium-high. Melt butter in drippings in pan. Add onion; sauté 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add corn kernels; sauté for 3 minutes or until lightly charred. Add edamame, and sauté for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in vinegar and next 5 ingredients (through bell pepper); cook 30 seconds, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with bacon and basil.
