Everyone loved it aside for my two picky eaters. I added celery to it. This was my first adventure into making gumbo. I did end up serving it over white rice instead of riced cauliflower. Read More

This was really good but too spicy for my husband. I don't know if it was the cajun seasoning or the sausage. Read More

This was absolutely delicious! I used 2 tsp of cajun seasoning then let everyone else spice it up as desired. I used regular rice instead of cauliflower rice. This is a fabulous recipe and we can't wait to make it again! Read More

This was a fairly easy recipe to put together, but some folks might not be familiar with browning flour for more color and flavor. By browning the flour separately from the oil, the recipe calls for less oil than a traditional roux. I'm thinking that less oil, reduced sodium, and cauli-rice contribute to the word "healthier" in the title. Most recipes can be tweaked, to individual tastes, and this recipe is no different. If you like celery, or okra, add away! If you want to add some chicken, put it in. I made the recipe exactly as directed, and I'm glad I did. DH and DS enjoyed it, even without "real" rice! Not exactly a one-pan meal, but it was satisfying on a cool, rainy spring evening. Thanks for posting! Read More

This is PHENOMENAL!! I couldn’t find chicken andouille so I used regular but cooked it to render and drain away some of the fat before adding it to the slow cooker. The flavors don’t make you miss the ‘unhealthy’ version of gumbo. This will be my go-to recipe for Cajun dinners. Read More

I made this recipe with a few tweaks. It was delicious! I enjoyed this recipe so much, I shared it with a number of people. The tweaks I made were half the amount of andouille sausage and added in smoked sausage for the other amount. In the future, I plan to add some okra for added vegetables. Read More
