Veggie gumbo from the Grace Lutheran Church Cookbook I bought at a garage sale. The book doesnt say where Grace Lutheran is, but I thought it sounded great.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Method: In a large heavy stew pot, place bouillon and white grape juice, onion, green pepper, celery garlic, cook until tender, 5-7 minutes.
  2. Add other ingredients, cook over low heat, stirring occasionally to keep from sticking to bottom.
  3. Cover and simmer gently until corn and okra are done.
  4. (or simmer in crockpot 6-7 hours) If you use dried herbs, rub them with the palms of your hands before adding to the pot, this releases their mojo.

not absolutely fabulous, but I do believe I will be making it again. The flavors were mild, but tasty. I added cauliflower and kale to the dish and I also used both basil and rosemary. I doubled the tabasco sause as well. The simmer time is somewhat up to your own taste, but I simmered it for about half an hour to an hour and it came out just right for my family. NOTE: I realized after I finished making it, that since you use water AND bouillon, you could simply use broth.

This was a great meal. I used frozen corn and wish I had used fresh as the rest of the vegetables were fresh. The blend of the vegetables, herbs and grape juice was really good. I will be using this recipe often.

Yum! Lots of flavor! I halved the recipe, but wish I hadn't. I didn't have grape juice on hand, but had just canned some kudzu blossom syrup and it's suppossed to taste like grape juice, so used that. I used both fresh basil and rosemary, omitting the parsley(didn't have). Delicious! I served it over short grain brown rice, for a healthy meal!
