Maque Choux

Since it's Mardi Gras, and I made cauliflower po'boys, I figured I'd find a Cajun side. Enter maque choux.

Maque Choux

Source: Flavor Mosaic | Serves: 4 | Time: 20 min

Changes: used cashew cream instead of heavy cream


1 tbsp olive oil

1 package 12 ounces frozen #corn

1/2 sweet onion chopped

1/2 red bell pepper chopped

1/2 red bell pepper chopped

1 tbsp minced garlic

S&P, to taste

1/2 cup cashew cream (1/2 cup of cashews soaked in just boiled water for 15 minutes then blended down with some water to get a heavy cream consistency)

Pinch of cayenne


In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat, add oil, onions and bell peppers.

Cook until onion is clear. Stir in garlic and cook for about 1 minute.

Add in corn. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and cayenne, if desired. Cook 1 to 2 minutes.

Pour in cream, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!
