    mightyro_cooking4u's Note:

    This is from THE LADY AND SONS, TOO cookbook by Paula Deen.This is really simple and does not take very long. I like to add other seafood and fish to make it even more hearty or just because I'm a meat lover. Some times I'll add corn kernals or mini cob on the cob.Serve over rice (a SC favorite) or pasta.

      Hearty, tasty dish! Not able to use file powder though, as not available here in Europe, as far as I know. Wonder if it can be substituted with anything?

      Best gumbo I've ever made!!! My mom said it tasted better than Grandma's, and she's creole and can cook!!! I tweaked the recipe a bit, I added fresh green tomatoes and alot of creole seasoning with salt. Came out very spicy, but not overwhelmingly so. The andouille sausage I added was cajun, which gave it a great flavor. I added more file powder too, and added the rice into the gumbo. Perfect companion to this dish would be some iced sweet tea with lemon! Delicious!!!
