What is Cajun sauce made of?
But what is it now that you actually need to have at hand? Not much, as I mentioned:
- vegan mayo
- Cajun seasoning
- onion powder
- garlic powder
- smoked paprika
- tomato paste
Those are all simple ingredients that I’m sure you have at home anyways.
How do you make Cajun sauce from scratch?
In a bowl, combine vegan mayo, the Cajun seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and tomato paste.
Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, then combine everything with a wire whisk or spatula.
Enjoy immediately or transfer to a jar and put a lid on top. Leftovers will last for 1 week in the fridge.
It is just an amazing sauce that is always right for dinner, lunch and so much more. As you can see on the pictures I used this Cajun Sauce with pasta and over fries. Both were absolutely delicious!
As variation, try adding dried or fresh herbs.
