    3 tablespoons cooking oil
    3 tablespoons flour
    1 med onion, chopped
    3 ribs celery, chopped
    1 10-ounce package frozen sliced okra
    1 bay leaf
    1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    2 teaspoons salt
    1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne
    15oz can of diced tomatoes
    4 cups chicken stock
    14oz Hillshire farms chicken hardwood smoked sausage 1/4-inch slices
    3/4 cup long-grain rice


1) in a large stainless-steel pot, heat the oil over moderate heat.

2) Whisk in the flour and cook, whishing until starting to brown, about 4 minutes or so

3) Reduce the heat to moderately low.

4) Stir in the onion and celery.

5) Cook until onions start to soften, about 7-10 minutes.

6) Add the okra, bay leaf, thyme, oregano, salt, black pepper, cayenne, and tomatoes.

7) Cover and cook for 5 minutes

8) Stir in the broth and the smoked sausage.

9) Bring to a boil.

10) Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

11) Remove the bay leaf.

13) Meanwhile, cook rice to package directions (I do not use any extra salt here)

14) When rice is cooked through, mix into gumbo

Note: The flavor of browned roux is essential to the traditional taste of gumbo. So the flour mixture typically looks like peanut butter by the time the vegetables have softened.

You can keep the rice out, but I like mixing it in.

Serving size is 2 cups! This dish really fills you up!
