    Zewbiedoo's Note:

    No roux. My DH came up with this gumbo-like dish when our garden was overflowing with fresh okra. Whips up quickly and is great served with rice.

      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).
