Recipe by Ms.Liza

I got this recipe from a health freak friend of mine. It's soooo easy and soooo good. All it takes is one pot. Not a lot of mess or cleaning afterwards.

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!
