Low Carb Gumbo made with no flour so it is Gluten Free friendly too! I'm doing phase 1 of Atkins and missing soups and stews. This can easily be made with any extra seafood or meats from one of your dinners. I had chicken breast in the fridge. I used frozen diced onions and green peppers and okra for simplicity and Tony Chachere seasoning for the creole seasoning. You can add a dash or two of tabasco if it isn't spicy enough for you!

  5. add tomatoes and cook until softened and breaking apart.
  6. add creole seasoning and stir to incorporate in vegetable mixture.
  7. add vegetable broth (1/2 a cup at a time) until desired thickness (xanthan gum and okra will thicken the mixture so you may want to add more water after the stock if not to your taste).
