My mother-in-law introduced me to this traditional Cajun side dish and it became a family favorite. I gravitate toward recipes with simple ingredients and it doesn’t get any more simple than this!
1. Slice, dice and chop up your onion, pepper, and celery. If my celery leaves look nice and green, I chop those up and stick them in there too.
2. In a large skillet, melt your butter over medium heat and then add your chopped vegetables.
3. Sprinkle on your salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning (about 1/4 teaspoon of each). You can add more later if needed.
4. Saute your vegetables until the onion is wilted looking, about 7-8 minutes.
5. Add your bag of corn, stir and cook this another 2 minutes.
6. Sprinkle your flour over the vegetables and stir this together. It will quickly turn to a thick mixture.
7. Add your milk and mix this all up.
8. Taste and add more salt, pepper or Cajun Seasoning if needed. Once thickened you are ready to serve.
This is a stick-to-your-ribs, warm-you-up, side dish. This is not the conventional creamed spinach recipe that calls for tons of butter and cheese, it is low-fat and delicious. What is also great about this recipe is that it is a total “pantry” dish that is a quick go-to on a busy day.
