I love Creole food and this is a wonderful way to lighten up a classic. Easy enough for a large gathering or simple enough for a small dinner party. Serve with crusty bread for a dining experience. Recipe is from "The Diabetes Food and Nutrition Bible".

It was so great to have a hearty creole dish without having to make a roux. No roux sure lowered the calories! I'm a bit wimpy, so thought it was a little spicy; DH found it perfect. Thanks PaulaG!<br/>made for ZWT9.

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #77* Prepared about 1/2 volume this tasty recipe -- minus the okra -- STRONG personal preference.This was so quick and easy, that being so flavorful was almost a surprise ! This will be replacing my standard creole recipe. Wish I had made the entire recipe to have left-overs ! Thanks for another winner, paula !
