A pure Cajun dish. Sweet Peas in a Roux. I had this every week of my life growing up at Mom’s house in South Louisiana. Still have it regularly. Great as a side dish (alone or served over rice) alongside any fried, baked, or grilled meat, poultry, or fish.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons roux, Cajun style
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans sweet peas, with liquid
  • 34 cup onion, diced fine
  • 12 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 12 teaspoon cajun seasoning


  1. Begin with the roux in a 3 quart pot. Melt the roux if it's store bought. Add all other ingredients. Bring to rolling simmer. Simmer for about 25 minutes. Will form a thick sauce. Serve.
