    RedAntisocial's Note:

    I've always loved the Gumbo and other dishes my Dad used to make, and in my efforts to try and figure out how he made them I've come up with this Gumbo recipe. It's incorporating several things from various recipes found here on (such as how to make a roux!).

      Absolutely delicious! I skipped the powdered garlic and onion and increased the corresponding fresh ingredients. I'll definitely be making this again.

      WOW! This is delicious. And super simple...especially when you have a helper to chop vegetables. :) I browned the flour first, then added the oil, so my roux was a gorgeous ultra-dark brown (the color of brownie batter). I set it to cook over night and my sweetie and I each took it to work for lunch today. So flavorful, perfectly seasoned. A very hearty fall or winter meal. This recipe is a real keeper. Thanks Red!

      Wow, I'm addicted! This is a delicious recipe, and it's going to be on my menu at least once a month now. I'm on a gluten-free diet and this was easy to convert by substituting Bob's Red Mill all-purpose gluten-free flour for the regular flour and substituted butter for oil (maybe not as healthy, but delicious)! The roux still turned out great. I used pink shrimp and fresh basil, oregano and thyme, which all worked out wonderfully. Next time I'm going to try adding some okra.
