Grits are a versatile base for this rustic blend of corn, onion, garlic, and fennel.
Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add fennel, onion, and garlic; cook 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring often.
Add peppers; cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add corn, lima beans, and whipping cream; cook 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring often. Remove from heat; stir in parsley and next 3 ingredients. Serve over Gruyère Grits. Sprinkle with chopped tomato.
