Vegetarian Gumbo

Vegetarian Gumbo

Serves 8

Here, the rich, dark roux of a Louisiana-style gumbo is laced with carrots, parsnips, okra, and green beans, but feel free to substitute any vegetables you have on hand.
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ⅓ cup flour
  • 1 small onion, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 28-oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen green beans
  • 3 carrots, sliced (2 cups)
  • 1 parsnip, diced (1 cup)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen sliced okra, optional
  • 1 Tbs. ground cumin
  • 1 Tbs. paprika
  • 1 Tbs. dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper

1. Stir together oil and flour in Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot until smooth. Cook over high heat 10 minutes, or until roux turns a dark caramel color, stirring constantly.

2. Add onion, bell pepper, and celery, and cook 5 minutes, or until vegetables are softened. Stir in all remaining ingredients and 4 cups water. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook 40 minutes, or until carrots are tender. Serve over rice.

Well, now.  That sounds good, but you're making me get nostalgic for my beach home and seafood gumbo!
