How To Make The Cajun Trinity
The Cajun Trinity is a mixture of chopped onion, bell pepper and celery.
Most Cajuns also add garlic and parsley too.
You can’t hardly cook anything Cajun without the “Holy Trinity” of Cajun cooking.
It is a basic ingredient to just about every Cajun dish.
Cajuns don’t say, “Add onion, bell pepper and celery”…
They say, “Add a cup of “the trinity”.
The Cajun Trinity is also a basic ingredient in spaghetti sauce, stews, and many more recipes.
Cajun Trinity Ingredients:
1 large sweet onion
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
6-8 stalks celery
5 gloves garlic
2 handfuls of fresh parsley tops
Note: Any color bell pepper will do, using different colored bell peppers just makes your Cajun Trinity prettier.
Wash bell peppers, celery and parsley thoroughly and pat with paper towels to remove excess water.
Slice them up.
Dice them up.
Chop them up.
Mince them up.
Throw it all in a large mixing bowl and stir to mix evenly.
Four cups of the Cajun Trinity mixture is sufficient for a stew, gumbo or etouffee.
To store for later use, place four cups mixture in freezer safe zipper bags and label with the date prepared.
Place flat in the freezer.
