Recipe by Javagoddess
"Gumbo (a West African word that means 'okra') is traditionally served over long-grain white rice, but feel free to health it up by using brown rice. I was challenged to come up with a vegan gumbo recipe that removed the meat, but kept similar consistency, texture, and that savory, spicy flavor. Laissez les bons temp rouler!"

green bell pepper, chopped
1 (14.5 ounce) can
eggplant, peeled and chopped
1 (15 ounce) can
red beans, drained and rinsed
gumbo file powder
1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
ground black pepper
liquid smoke flavoring
vegetable broth, divided
The only change to look out for is the cayenne pepper. We put just over 1/2 of one teaspoon of cayenne where it calls for 1 1/2. Glad we didn't add more as it was spicy with just that amount. My advice is to add your cayenne gradually and taste. Otherwise, it was delicious!
I struggled with trying to find a working vegetarian/vegan recipe. This came out perfect. Thank you!
