I loved this recipe. I should say first that, being Australian, this was the 1st gumbo I've ever eaten so I had no expectations. I will absolutely be making this again. This is a terrific dish if you're dieting - it's satisfying, spicy, and delicious. I used almost all the proper ingredients according to the recipe. I don't think we have collard greens in Australia - we do have okra but since I had nearly all the listed ingredients at home, I used 1 large chopped carrot and a can of corn kernels to add some vegetable content instead - this is probably a form of blasphemy to a Cajun but it was delicious anyway. Highly recommended.
