I made the recipe as written except I used hot sausage links and yellow peppers. We loved the flavor and it was eaten up, even my 8 year old granddaughter ate and loved it! It will be going into my favorite recipe file!
I made this using cajun spice instead of the thyme and oregano. Used spicy smoked sausage and added some frozen okra and it is YUMMY! I don't care that it is not "real" gumbo like some said if you come from Louisiana, so for those of us who like a variation this one is a keeper!
This is a good starter for a base gumbo, but like someone said earlier there is too much oregano and thyme in it!!! Not enough cayenne either... It needs other seasonings as well such as salt and pepper... And also as someone said earlier it's not a real gumbo either considering 'real' gumbo doesn't have carrots in it, but they're good for the color... I also did add some more chicken broth... And I've also never heard of tomatoes being put in gumbo, but I'm trying it out... I'm not from Louisiana, but I love Louisiana cooking... I make gumbo and jambalaya all the time and I'm always looking for new recipes to try out and change... I've also added some left-over turkey from Thanksgiving and from what I've tasted so far it's really good... But the next time I make this I will cut the Thyme and Oregano in half or more!!!
