Quick Vegetarian Gumbo

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

I love gumbo, but always end up picking it all apart because I don't like the meats that are typically included. This one is vegetarian and surprisingly easy! For the sausage links, I prefer boca and morningstar farms products. Serve with hot sauce on the side. -- discovered on Whole Foods' website.

Very, very good recipe. I substituted one (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes and green chilies and one (14.5 oz.) can plain diced tomatoes. I use only one teaspoon of the Cajun spice. And I add 2/3 cup of water before bringing to a boil. Never thought I'd like okra until this recipe came along! Now I love it.
