Fou Maque Choux [RECIPE]

Moroccan Pork Loin with Blackberry Glaze and Fou Maque Choux

Fou Maque Choux is our spin on a Cajun classic. Blending some of our favorite flavors, it is a quick and filling side that pairs nicely with dishes like our Moroccan Pork Loin with Blackberry Glaze. (Photo by Jathan Fink, Jadeworks Entertainment)

Having traveled about the United States as much as we have, we tend to pick up culinary traditions all around the country. Maque Choux is a traditional side dish served throughout Louisiana. We first learned about it when we took a class at the New Orleans School of Cooking a few years back, although that recipe called for tomatoes. I’ve cut them out here, however, which is why I’m calling this version Fou Maque Choux (fou is Cajun for “crazy”). In its place I’ve  added a touch of Tex-Mex flavor by adding the black beans and Mexican oregano. The ingredients blend together beautifully and make for one yummy new riff on a Cajun classic. Enjoy!

Stuffed Peppers [RECIPE]

Growing up, both our mothers made stuffed peppers for dinner because it was an inexpensive and wholesome meal that stretched a few ingredients to feed our families. However, I prefer this grown-up version because it incorporates sweet red peppers, flavored chicken sausage instead of beef, and Near East’s toasted pine nut couscous mix which adds a bit of spice to the filling. This recipe is pretty forgiving though, so feel free to substitute whatever ground meat you may have on hand. You can also use rice like our moms did if couscous isn’t available.  Read more of this post
