Vegan rajas

I'm sorry about the lack of posting. I've been around, but not much cooking/posting lately.
Today I have a vegan take into the rajas con crema that I blogged about some time ago.
I used:
4 fresh poblano peppers
Two cloves of garlic
Half to a quarter of a white onion
One small can of corn
Vegetable oil
Salt to taste

The first thing to do is to roast the poblano peppers in the broiler. I cut them in two so I didn't have to turn them around. When they were charred, I put them in a plastic bag to "sweat".
1 Roast de poblano peppers

After the peppers are cooled down, peel and devein them.
2 Seed and devein the peppers

Slice in "rajas".
3 Slice in rajas

Meanwhile, slice onion and garlic and sautee them in the oil until lightly browned but not caramelized.
4 Fry onion

Add the rajas that, because of the roasting, should be kinda cooked by now, sautee for about 2 minutes and add salt to taste.
5 Add rajas

Then add the small can of yellow corn. Sautee for another 2 minutes just to make the taste uniform.
6 Add corn

That's it! Serve with a side of rice and refried beans. The corn tortilla is for making tacos.
7 Serve with rice and beans
