    ellie_'s Note:

    Shrimp Gumbo is a fast microwave soup that is quick and easy to prepare. We love it with a loaf of sourdough french bread. I made a few changes to the original recipe from Barbara Kafka's Microwave Gourmet Heathstyle Cookbook.

      Ellie, I'm sorry to take so long in making this wonderful dish. We had it last week and it was absolutely wonderful. I had never tried to make a gumbo before and I will be making this often. Thanks for such a good recipe.

      Did not turn out as well as expected. If I ever prepared this again, I would not add any oil at all. The sausage produced more than enough. Regarding spicing flavour, it was rather bland and had to improvise to kick it up to "tasteable". The garlic helped and tripled the thyme and chili powder and lots of pepper but no added salt because of the vegetable broth.

      This was my first real experience with microwave cooking. It was fast and easy, and it turned out so tasty! I replaced the chili and thyme with Cajun seasoning and added a bit of Chipotle Tabasco. Great recipe! Will definitely make again. Thanks!
