"This is a super easy gumbo. Smoked turkey may be substituted for the ham. Tastes even better the next day! Top with cooked rice and garnish with parsley and chopped green onions to serve." — Paula

This is a very good recipe! The only thing I did different was to cook the onion and celery directly in the roux until tender then added the okra (I used frozen becuase I could not find any fresh). I have made other gumbos that way and I hate making more pots dirty than I have to. Lazy me!:) Thanks for this wonderful recipe. The combinations are terrific.
This recipie was ok, I probably wouldn't make it again. I made it for a dinner party and it was recieved cooly from my guests
Good soup! I did make some changes. I used 1/2 cup oil & 2/3 cup flour to start. I added 2 large onions, 4 stalks celery & leaves, 5 cloves minced garlic, 1 bell pepper instead of okra, cooked 10 minutes. Then I stirred in 8 cups of water, 2 cans chopped tomatoes, 1 tablespoon dried parsley, 1-1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon thyme, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, 4 bay leaves & better than beef boullian, simmered 20 minutes or so then added 3 cans black eyed peas, no meat added but I did serve with rice which was good.
This recipe was soooooo delicious and so easy. I used fresh veggies, except for the tomatoes; I used canned, diced ones. I also added diced jalapeno peppers just to spice it up a little. True to her word, it was even better the second day!
I will definitely make this again. I made some changes. First, I used smoked sausage instead of ham. I also used two cans of ro-tel tomatoes with green chiles instead of chopping fresh tomatoes. I did not have fresh parsley, so I used about half the amount of dried. Finally, I added half a teaspoon of dried savory. And like a previous reviewer, I cooked the vegetables in with the roux, and because I used frozen okra I added it last. The gumbo is very good. Thanks for submitting it!
Great tasting, very filling & easy to make. Number one hit at my house!
This recipe was very good. I added a jalapeno to the onions and celery and okra to saute and used Rotel diced tomatoes with chilis. It gave it just the right kick. I also served this with white rice and corn bread. Great meal for a cold night!
Excellent! I added extra black eyed peas and corn as well. Was a big hit with my 11 year old as well as grandparents.
