  • I made this last night. It was good except I didn't use boxed Gumbo seasoning and rice. I found my own homemade seasoning for gumbo online and used brown rice. I saved 50 calories, 25 milligrams of cholesterol, 6 grams of carbs, & 750 milligrams of sodium. Didn't take any longer to make. Enjoy. - 1/3/12
