My dad's side of the family is all cajun, so whenever we went to visit them I always got to look forward to their gumbo. Craving something similar, and it being near Mardi Gras, I decided to give making my own gumbo a try.
Completely new to the process of making gumbo but I did a lot of research before I attempted this recipe and read a lot of reviews on it.
I made the okra according to the recipe and it turned out fine- not slimey. the andouille sausage I bought wasn't that great so it really didn't add anything, could've left it out. My roux definitely took more than 6 minutes- more like 45! very easy but extremely time consuming. I added onions to the vegetable mix (gotta have onions). Other than that I left the rest of the recipe alone and it turned out just like I remember gumbo and just the right amount of spice. My husband and my friends, who have never had gumbo, love it too!
