Happy Mardi Gras! Justice, Faith, Power, purple pepper, green pepper, yellow pepper, bell pepper

Happy Mardi Gras!  In Cajun cooking the "Holy Trinity" of vegetables includes onion, celery, and green bell peppers.  For this festive holiday that screams color, we are going to include purple and yellow peppers as honorary members of the trinity family.

According to Wikipedia, the "Holy Trinity" is the base for many classic New Orleans dishes including étouffée, gumbo, and jambalaya.

Lucky for you, we have found some veg versions of these classic dishes to meet your veggie-loving needs on Fat Tuesday!
