    Bergy's Note:

    No there is no Okra in this gumbo but I don't think you'll miss it. If you wish hold off putting in the Zucchini & peas until the last hour or so. Serve with White or Brown rice - the brown went well with it. I hope you enjoy the recipe. The hardest part of this recipe is stirring the roux

      This tasty Gumbo made me feel like I was sitting in a café in New Orleans, listening to Jazz music and watching all the tourists walking along the street. Yesterday, I was in a virtual café eating tasty Greek Island Latkes and with a dill sauce (another RSC #5 recipe). Today, I was in another virtual café eating a tasty Louisiana Gumbo with chicken, sausage and Creole spices. Out of approximately 100+ recipes in the RSC #5 contest I had chosen two to review and this was one of them. Since I am not into sweet yams or peas, I substituted a can of black eye peas and "Yes" frozen okra which I like. I also, added some extra Creole spices to give this gumbo a real kick and made some brown rice to go along. Further, I would suggest using 1 1/2 -2 cups of chicken broth (instead of 3 cups) and at the end use some tapioca/cornstarch or flour in a little water to thicken the gumbo (my crock pot tends to produce to much liquid and I had to dump some prior to adding a thickener). Also, adding the zucchini, okra and peas at the very end of cooking is a good point. Finally, even though I did modify this recipe to my tastes and since I had never made a gumbo before, it was a real treat!
