Gumbo Goodness

Having always wanted to make it but never bothering to do so, I decided tonight was Gumbo night. This recipe is inspired by one I found in Self magazine, of course not nearly as low in calories. 

Ingredient List (yup, I’m actually telling you how to make this!):

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 2 – 4 chicken sausages
  • 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 cup of fresh parsley, chopped (1/4 cup prior to chop)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped (I also added some leftover orange)
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 4 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 20 shrimp, deveined, deshelled

First thing first, chop up those veggies, chicken and sausages.

Sprinkle Cajun seasoning on chicken. Heat olive oil (or whatever else you like to use to make things not stick) in a large/deep frying pan. Add your chicken and sausage. Turn once. Cook about three minutes. Then add all those chopped veggies.

Cook for a few minutes. Add flour and mix in. Let cook for a minute. Add one cup of broth and tomatoes (the tomatoes, the juice, just dump the can in). Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Last but not least, add the shrimp, and cook another few minutes until it’s pink and edible. Serve.
