    HeatherFeather's Note:

    I saw this recipe deomonstratd on tv during a PBS telethon. It looked so good, that I made a donation in order to get the cookbook. I have not tried this recipe yet, but it sure looked good. Surprisingly, this recipe does not start with a roux, so this isn't quite a traditional version. Adapted from "5 Tastes of the South."

      I halved the recipe and used 6oz kielbasa, 5 oz frozen cut okra, some parsley stalks, 1 t roasted garlic paste and didn't add onion salt or garlic salt. I also added the cooked chicken at the beginning and didn't add any uncooked rice. Low 7h. This is good, it didn't need any extra salt. Next time, I'll try 2t roasted garlic and double the okra.

      I made this recipe and found it a little bland. After adding the following ingredients my family wants it made again soon. They loved it. I added garlic and onion powder instead of the garlic and onion salt so I added 1 tsp salt instead. Then 5 Tbsp worcestershire instead of 3, 2-3 bay leaves, 1 tsp cumin (ground), 1/2 tsp coriander (ground), 1/4 tsp cayene and 3/4 c long grain rice instead of instant, which I added earlier since it needed more cooking time. This turned out to be very delicious.

      On its own, this recipe was pretty good. It was easy to make and had good flavor. If you really like authentic gumbo, though, this one will disappoint you. It resembles jumbalaya much more so than gumbo. I would call it gumbalaya.
