ISLAND GUMBO


Yesterday I Made:
ISLAND GUMBO for DINNER.
Thick tomato based broth filled with okra, red bell pepper, onions, corn, peas, celery,habanero, brown rice, and spices.

First time making gumbo using okra.
It did really thicken the soup!!!

This recipe is so delicious.
So many different flavors.
A little bit of heat.
A little bit of tanginess.
Lots of textures from all the vegetables and the brown rice.

If you like a little bit of heat in your gumbo, give this recipe a try.
If you prefer more heat, leave the seeds on the habanero.

Great for cold, rainy days.

I've been looking for a vegan gumbo recipe. I don't think I can do the habanero thing though.
