Gotta love gumbo. Nothing says Louisiana like spicy Louisiana gumbo. Did I mention that it is easy to make? Louisiana Gumbo is a staple in the south, but did you know that you can also have it healthy? This Louisiana Gumbo recipe does not skimp on the flavor.

2 tbs of olive oil
4 garlic cloves, crushed
½ lb of okra
3 serrano peppers
3 tbs of flour
2 cups of water
1 tsp of paprika
1 tsp of cayenne pepper
½ tsp of black pepper
½ tsp of garlic powder
12 oz of peeled, deveined shrimp, halved
½ lb of favorite turkey sausage, chopped (or calamari)
1 lb of chicken, chopped
- In a blender, add the tomatoes. Blend until smooth.
- Heat a large pot on medium high, once hot add the olive oil. Then saute the garlic cloves, okra, and serrano peppers until the color begins to brown.
- Add the flour to the mixture and continue to saute for 4 minutes. It will look clumpy.
- Add the tomato puree, water, celery, paprika, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and garlic powder. Simmer for about 20 minutes on medium heat.
- After 20 minutes, lightly season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Then add the shrimp to the gumbo. Should cook for another 5 minutes at this point or else shrimp might overcook.
- Lightly season the chicken with salt and pepper. Then saute the chicken with the sausage until cooked through. Add to the gumbo.
- Serve hot over a bed of rice.
