    Nadia Melkowits's Note:

    This is a really tasty gumbo that is also easy to make. For more authentic taste you can add 1/4 cup of Gumbo Filé Powder spice before you serve. I hope you get to enjoy this as much as we do! Note: If this is too mild for your taste you can add some hot sauce as you serve. I made this for my 1 year old and I had to cut down on the spice.

      Slowly stir the flour into heated oil in a heavy cast iron skillet. Continue to stir until the flour is dark brown. Add the next 4 ingredients; stir until onions are clear. Add tomato paste and a cup of water. Add okra and tomatoes. Cook slowly, adding all the water and shrimp stock -a little at a time. Stir in sugar & creole seasoning. Cook for about an hour on a low fire, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking to the bottom of pot; adding water if necessary.
