DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the greens, roll them up and shred them finely, and measure them.
  • Steam them in the water that clings to them.
  • Set them aside, with any cooking liquid from them.
  • Mix the peeled chopped onion with the seasonings.
  • Set aside.
  • Make a roux by cooking the fat and flour, stirring constantly, until it browns, 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Add the seasoned onions, and cook them slowly for 10 minutes or so, stirring occasionally.
  • Slowly stir in the stock.
  • If using leftover rice, break it up and stir it in.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Add the greens, heat through, and serve.
  • If using rice freshly made for this dish, omit adding the rice to the gumbo.
  • Put some in each bowl and serve the gumbo over it.
  • (Just simmer the gumbo 10 minutes after the roux and stock have been mixed, then add the greens.).
