Vegetarian gumbo
Pre-made Roux (don’t ask me how to make it, I either don’t get it dark enough or I burn it)
2 generous Tsp of Voodoo Seasoning (dried herbs like oregano and thyme and some other good stuff)
the holy trinity
¨       2 onions
¨       Red, yellow and green bell pepper, diced
¨       4 stalks of celery
6 cups of vegetable broth
1 can of stewed tomatoes
3-5 shakes of Louisiana Hot Sauce
3 cloves of garlic
1 ½ cups of chopped okra (I like frozen)
Salt and pepper to taste
About a tsp of file powder

In a large stock pot
follow the directions for the roux
sauté the holy trinity in some olive oil, veggies should still be firm
add vegetable broth to the roux then the trinity, hot sauce, garlic, tomatoes, okra,
voodoo seasoning and salt and pepper
 bring ingredients up to a boil and let it simmer about an hour or all day so the house smells good
spoon over cooked rice and add file powder to thicken
