Gumbo

Reading Time: ( Word Count: )

A classic New Orleans dish with smoked sausage, tofu, and okra.

Short History: Gumbo usually is cited as a perfect example of the melting-pot nature of Louisiana cuisine – so much so that the origin and evolution of the dish is highly speculative! The name “gumbo” comes from the West African word of okra – which leads people to believe that originally it was made with okra. It is believed that gumbo has origins in French, Spanish, African, Native American, Caribbean, and German cuisines! This version from The Vegan Taste will provide you with fiber, vitamins, antioxidants, and more!

Reheating Instructions: Warm over medium heat in a pan.

Customer Comments:

“Very delicious.” – Cheryl Po. from Scottsdale

“This was comforting yet somehow not too heavy like I find a traditional gumbo to be. Another winner!” – Nicole Hu. from Phoenix
