Cajun Veggies

Okay, I made this recipe up myself and it turned out not too shabby.

  • 1 potato, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh green beans
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper, chopped or sliced long
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp cajun spice
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
Put a teaspoon of oil in a hot pan and start pan frying the chopped potatoes. Cook for 3-4 minutes, then add the green beans (be sure to cut off the ends of the beans). Cook 3-4 minutes, then add carrots, onion, and bell peppers. Cook for 3-4 minutes, add a bit of oil or small sliver of butter as needed so that the potatoes don't start burning and sticking to the pan. Add the black pepper, cajun spice, mix. Then add the can of cream of mushroom soup, reduce heat to low, cover and let simmer for 20 minutes (check to make sure potatoes are cooked through). Yum.

*Edit: Turned out a hit with my friends, BUT it is spicy with all that cajun spice and black pepper. Make note of that if you're entertaining non-spicy-food-eating friends.
