Maque Choux

     I really dig this Louisiana dish and loved tweaking it to be healthier than its traditional sibling. This recipe screams summer served hot or cold.

5ea   Corn, cut off the cob
1ea   Green pepper, diced
5ea   Plum tomato, diced
1ea   White onion, diced
5ea    Medjool Dates
1/2t   Cayenne powder

      In a blender combine the cayenne, dates and 1 cup of water.  Blend until liquid.  Add more water to get a runny consistency.  Set aside.  Heat a saute pan on high heat for 1 min and add diced onions.  Stir constantly until tender.  Add 1/4 cup water and the remaining vegetables.  Water saute for 5 min or until the water is gone stirring constantly.  The vegetables should be almost done.  Add the cayenne date water and saute on medium until the liquid is reduced in half.  Remove from heat.  Serve hot or cold. ENJOY!
