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.
delicious! i added a can of diced tomato too and a little bit of extra crushed red pepper and it was PERFECT. this is the way gumbo should taste.
Great Recipe....Added can of diced tomato... Job well done on your gumbo creativity......Without question, this is the best gumbo yet.
