Vegan Gumbo

What you need: 

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup flour (white works best)
1 14-oz. tube imitation sausage mix OR 1 package Soyrizo
1 package seitan or vegan "chicken" (optional)
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, diced
2 cups fresh or frozen green or wax beans in bite size pieces
1 cup each chopped carrot and celery
1-2 cups fresh or frozen okra
handful or so of fresh thyme (about 6-8 sprigs)
3 bay leaves
1 28oz. can tomatoes
2-3 cup vegetable broth
2 tablespoon cumin; salt, pepper, and chili powder to taste

What you do: 

Add oil and flour to a pan and cook over med-high heat, whisking constantly, until it turns a dark caramel color (makes a roux sauce). May take up to 10 minutes. Pour into crockpot (or pot, if cooking on stove). Let cool a little bit, then add tomatoes and stir to combine. Turn heat to medium in crockpot or medium low on stove.
Cook sausage and chicken, if using, in same pan as the roux; add oil if needed to prevent sticking. Set aside when done.
Add all vegetables (pepper through okra) to tomato/roux mixture in pot or crockpot; stir after each addition. Add vegetable broth as needed; it should be more stew-like than soup-like, but all the veggies should be covered with liquid so that they cook evenly.
Strip the leaves off half of the thyme sprigs and add to gumbo. Add remaining sprigs and bay leaves directly to gumbo (remove before serving). Add cumin, salt, pepper, and chili powder (just a little!) to taste. Stir when you think about it. :-)
Let cook until carrots start to become tender (1-2 hrs?). 1/2 hour before serving, stir in vegan sausage/chicken. Let continue cooking until serving.
This with cornbread on the side is pretty good!
p.s. any veggies can work...turnips, rutabagas, corn, peas, etc.

The first major law to curtail the rights of Jewish citizens was the "Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service" of April 7, 1933, according to which Jewish and essay online "politically unreliable" civil servants and employees were to be excluded from state service.


A vegan gumbo just does not sound right but I figured I have found other great recipes so why not? I have been so pleased with the outcome of my gumbo that it will be in my bi-weekly diet for months to come.

So far I have found the most amazing recipes and I think all of these should be put in a book and not just online. Thank you so much for the ideas.
