Chicken & Turkey Sausage Gumbo (Ww)

"From the Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook. This is a much lower calorie and fat version of a beloved classic, made in a slow-cooker! As written, it's very mild; so if you like it hot, you will need to add cayenne or chile flakes to taste. Cooking time assumes you will cook on low; if you cook on high time will be 5 hours."

  • Combine onion, bell pepper, and celery in a 6 quart slow cooker. Place chicken and sausage on top of the vegetables. Sprinkle with Cajun seasoning and salt (I use about a teaspoon of kosher salt at this point). Top with stock and tomatoes.
  • Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours, or on high for about 4 hours until the meat and vegetables are fork tender.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the flour and cold water to form a loose paste. Add 1/4 cup of the hot liquid from the slow cooker, mixing until well combined. Add the mix into the slow cooker, and stir to mix well.
  • Add the okra and corn, and cook on high for 45 minutes to an hour; until the gumbo is bubbling and thickened. Taste for seasoning, and salt or pepper or more Cajun seasoning as needed before serving.

I live near Seattle, WA with my husband of 11 years and our pet ferrets. We're lucky enough to own a home with a big, south facing yard which is great for entertaining. It also allows me to have a big vegetable garden where I grow most of my own herbs and a lot of the vegetables we eat in the summer, as well as a bunch to share with family and friends. In my professional life, I'm an accountant- but what I really love to do is cook and eat! Most of my ability is self-taught. I love to experiment with new recipes and techniques, most of which I get from watching way too much food tv and reading foodie magazines. Recently I decided to start a personal chef business and have cooked for a few clients. I love the challenge of designing a menu to fit a family's specific tastes and needs, and then cooking it for them to enjoy. For me, cooking is an expression of love. Everyone needs to eat, but food is more than just fuel for the body, it can nurture and comfort ~ give us a memory from childhood, or a retreat when we feel ill. I always think of the people who I'm cooking for when I make a dish, and there is no better compliment than when someone enjoys the food I've made especially for them. I also like to do OAMC- style cooking, but instead of using it mainly to get dinner on the table, I focus on getting lunch in the bag! Eating out is far too expensive in both dollars and nutrition to make a habit of, yet I want a hot, satisfying meal to enjoy in the middle of the day. Cookin ahead allows me to have great food, without sacrificing either my dollars or my waistline. <img src=""><img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""><img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""><img src="">[IMG][/IMG]
