Amazing Gumbo

Gumbo is a savory Cajun or Creole stew served over rice. This recipe has very little added oil but big flavor. The fennel and pinch of nutmeg help give it a slight sausage flavor, which adds a depth. Not my best food photography I’ll admit. It’s hard to get inspired by a pile of vegetables on brown rice. But if only you could smell and taste this gumbo through the screen, so GOOD. I had left overs for lunch yesterday and poured some black beans on top as well. The flavors worked really well together. GO TO RECIPE >

    you know, i’ve never had gumbo before! but this looks delicious and hearty. i love that it’s low in fat and calories. whenever i think of gumbo, i think of something that’s not particularly healthy. but those are probably non-vegan versions..
