      This is very good for so little ingredients. I am not sure how close this is to gumbo because I have never tried it. But, my picky family asked to have it again. I always simmer with two bay leaves and a pinch or two of thyme. Also, I alternate using minute rice (absorbs most of the liquid) and pre-cooked rice. Pre-cooking the rice makes it similar to a juicy soup. This is a wonderful way to incorporate a healthy meal without your family knowing! (smile) Recommended!

      My Family loved this gumbo. I changed it just a bit. I used brown quick cooking rice, 1 can of seasoned okra,a total of 2 cans chicken broth instead of water and bouillon, and last I used dear sausage. This was a quick and easy, great tasting recipe, we will have it again.

      maybe I used the wrong ingredients but I found it to be a bit boring. I used diced tomatoes (canned) chicken broth, bouillon and pork kielbasa. WE ate it , but it wasn't a favorite.
