      Great recipe for gumbo! I'd never used carrots in gumbo before, and it added nice color. This time I used 1/2 green bell pepper and 1/2 red pepper which added more color. The andouille adds nice flavor and heat to this dish. We like it pretty spicy and doubled the cayenne. I have to admit I cheated - didn't use the okra. (Love fried okra only.) The gumbo was great without it. I added the fresh chopped parsley and chopped green onions as a topping in each bowl, rather than adding them to the pot which really added freshness and another layer of texture and flavor. We'll make this again, for sure.
