    Better than the last recipe I used. I didn't use the cup of water. Thanks for posting.

    We liked this recipe for healthier gumbo. It was a little plain for our tastes, but we used lots of hot sauce, which helped a lot. I used No Chicken Broth (vegetarian) for the broth and gluten free flour, otherwise followed the recipe as posted. Thanks! Made for ZWT9
