Fire Roasted Vegetarian Gumbo

The smokiness from the paprika, roasted peppers, and tomatoes takes the place of andouille sausage in this vegetarian gumbo. With a lot of spice and flavor, this gumbo is a great way to warm up on a cold winter’s night.

This recipe features 12 different kinds of peppers, including 10 varieties of hot peppers. It's mad, wicked good, but not for the faint of heart. It's extra hot and spicy, just the way I like it! It can be served over macaroni or pasta, or simply eaten by itself
