Sausage Gumbo

Recipe: Sausage Gumbo

Just the essential ingredients in this rendition of the hearty Creole favorite: sausage, okra, rice and a little spice.

 

Ingredients

  • 12-16 ounces hot Italian turkey sausage links, removed from casings
  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cans fire roasted diced tomatoes, lightly drained
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken stock
  • 16 oz frozen chopped okra
  • 3/4 cup instant brown rice
  • 1 bunch scallions, trimmed and sliced (optional)

Instructions

  1. Cook sausage in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, breaking it up into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl lined.
  2. Return the pan to medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until translucent, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and Cajun seasoning and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add flour and cook, stirring to coat the vegetables, until the flour browns, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. Stir in broth, cover, increase heat to high and bring to a boil.
  3. Return the sausage to the pan, along with okra and rice; reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook until the okra is heated through and the rice is tender, about 10 minutes. Serve sprinkled with sliced scallions, if using.
