    Sorry, but this is not a gumbo recipe! It's more like a pan-fry. I'm sure it's tasty, but it has no relation to gumbo or Creole flavors of Louisiana...give it a new name and you'll set up expectations for the goodness it really is! - 12/9/09

    This is a stir fry; gumbo is a type of soup. Doesn't need to have okra (my Louisiana native husband hates okra!) but it does need some kind of roux. There are low-fat versions of gumbo. - 12/9/09

    I agree with comments, this is not anything near a gumbo, but looks good, sounds tasty and nutritional info is right in line for me and my diabetic hubby who also has high cholesterol. I am making it for dinner tonite because I have all the ingredients on hand - 1/25/10

    Gumbo is a soup that begins with a roux (serving it over rice is a given). Some Louisianians add tomatoes, and/or okra but it's optional.My mama often added okra to her chicken or turkey and sausage gumbo but not seafood. But she enjoyed shrimp and okra gumbo. Gumbo began as a way to use leftovers - 12/18/09

    To settle the clash.... no, this sounds tasty but is not gumbo. I will try it because it is full of veggies and would make a good lunch to take to work.

    Gumbo also does not have tomatoes in it. That would be sauce piquant or a coubillion. Okra is only put in chicken and sausage gumbo.
