  2. Soak seaweeds in hot water or veggie broth and set aside.
  3. In small amount of water or veggie broth, saute okra, onion, pepper and garlic over medium heat until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Make a roux with the flour and oil by blending until well mixed and cooking over a medium heat until brown (but not black), about 10 minutes.
  5. Add liquid from seaweed very slowly, mixing to remove any lumps and simmer. Add seaweed, bay leaves, thyme and hot pepper until mixed. Add tomatoes, combine with cooked okra and simmer 5 minutes. Remove bay leaves and serve.

I don't like seaweed but this gumbo tastes great. It's easy to make and the texture is perfect.
