    Many of us in the south make gumbo w/o okra. The secret of a good gumbo is a smoky roux, the flour and fat paste browned slowly over low heat. It can be done with olive oil and whole grain flour. I also use thyme and "shrimp boil"; & yes, we do use sausage and shrimp in the same pot! Pour over rice. - 3/4/08

    this isn't a gumbo....you have to make a roux!
    secondly...you would almost never put seafood in the same gumbo as chicken and sausage. You can make real "gumbo" healthy...but this is more like a heavily protein dense soup! I would have used water instead of chicken broth...if you have the roux

    Hey ladies!
    For those of you that make a roux with oil and flour. You can use whole wheat flour and bake it in the oven.
