I have to be honest here . . . I don't care if you call this "stew" or "gumbo". I call it "fantastic"!!! We loved the flavor and it is so filling and satisfying. I served over a bed of hot rice as suggested. You can't go wrong with this great dish!
I liked the recipe. Without so many spices one can taste the vegetables. I have used shrimp and chicken to make gumbo. Thanks for sharing
It's an ok stew, but as from being a gumbo as the Arctic is from New Orleans. Need I say more? Hint - gumbo is not just roux. It always has the Cajun Trinity and a wonderful layering of specific spices and herbs which simply are not here in this receipe (except for red pepper).
This recipe was pretty darn good! I added some potatoes for some extra chunk. Thanks for sharing!
