Creole Okra Gumbo

Submitted by: LAURENSX


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 package Pictsweet Seasoning Blend - if not available, can use 2 cups onion, 3-4 cloves garlic, 1 cup celery, 1 cup green bell pepper
    3 ounces Linguica or smoked sausage
    8 cups okra - fresh or frozen, sliced
    8 cups tomatoes - fresh or canned, diced
    2 Tbsp basil
    2 Tbsp ground sage
    salt and pepper to taste

Tips

In New Orleans, this dish is served over fluffy white rice. For REAL Creole cooking, try adding shrimp and crab meat, along with the linguica. The seafood should be added right at the very end, as they cook quickly. Taste and season once more.


Directions

Spray dutch oven with nonstick spray. Over a medium heat, saute seasoning blend until soft. Add diced linguica to seasoning and saute until tender. Add okra, stirring well. Add tomatoes, stirring well. Stir mixture often, as okra might scorch. Add basil, sage, salt and pepper.

For vegetarians, omit linguica for a delicious okra gumbo.
