      Delicious. I was skeptical of a gumbo with no roux, but this worked perfectly. I too added the can of tomatoes, and because I'm a gumbo purist, I added about 1 tsp of file powder at the end. I left out the pepper flakes so my kids would eat it, but I added plenty of hot sauce to my own bowl. It really was superb. I will make this one again!

      Very tasty and satisfying. Left off the rice to reduce the carbs, but otherwise just halved for DH and me. Great flavors. Thanks for posting.
