We really liked this! I followed the recipe very closely. My only deviation was to cut the hot pepper sauce to 1/4 teaspoon, and this was enough heat for us. Though the roux took a few minute...

The roux was flavorless. I kept adding more Cajun spice. But it never really flavored it very well. I tasted the seasoning and it tasted like it was right but I don't think I will make this reci...

Delicious! Omitted okra. Cooked the roux for 30 minutes for a rich broth. Hot sauce on table for individual use but not in cooking. Husband is Cajun and he loved it. Will certainly make again.

I have to agree, not a big fan of boiling sausage but when put together with all the other ingredients, it was fab!

It was very easy to make. Well written instructions. I omitted the red pepper only because I didn't have one, and added a can of tomato, okra, and corn (drained). It all worked out nicely.

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 (...

Did not make any changes & will most DEFINITELY be making this again!

Fast and fabulous! I added a can of diced tomatoes and a can of lump crab meat. Served over jasmine rice. A big hit!

Excellent recipe overall, only I subbed andouille sausage for authenticity.
