Okra-and-Corn Maque Choux

On a hot day like today, this maque choux makes for an excellent dinner. This recipe from Southern Living is sure to be a hit at your dinner table. I think I'll serve this with some ice cold watermelon and some sweet North Carolina peaches. I can't think of a better way to beat the heat!
  • 1/4 pound spicy smoked sausage, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups fresh corn kernels
  • 1 cup sliced fresh okra
  • 1 cup peeled, seeded, and diced tomato (1/2 lb.)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Sauté sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat 3 minutes or until browned.

Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic, and sauté 5 minutes or until tender.

Add corn, okra, and tomato; cook, stirring often, 10 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy! As always, please send recipes you would like to share to smithfieldfarmersmarketrecipes@gmail.com.
