GREAT gumbo! this one will be added to the regular staples menu for sure. some fairly insignificant mods that just felt right: -used EV olive oil/quinoa flour for rue. -doubled the garlic (...

No changes

Substituted andouille sausage for smoked for a bit of a kick and served with brown rice. Otherwise followed recipe as written. Wonderfu! Be ready for the kick. It's a keeper.
