Fire Roasted Vegetarian Gumbo

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
This recipe has some serious flaws, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else in its current form. First of all, if you add the sweet potatoes and parsnips so late in the process, not all of them will cook all the way through. When I made it, many of the chunks were still crunchy. Second, file powder is an end spice - you should not add it and then simmer for 30 minutes. The result will be slimy and unappetizing, as I found out when I made it. I like the ideas of the roasted peppers and the various spices, but not enough to salvage it overall. Thumbs down.
