Category: Soups

 Ingredients List

  • 1 (3-4 lb) chicken; in pieces
  • 1 c Oil
  • 2/3 c Flour
  • 1 lb Hot link sausage; cut in
  • -1-2" pieces
  • 1 lg Onion
  • 2 Cloves garlic; minced
  • 1 c Green onion tops; chopped
  • 1/2 c Parsley; chopped
  • 1/4 ts Cayenne pepper
  • 3 qt Boiling water
  • 2 tb Fil
  • Salt & pepper to taste


Use black iron pot, or other heavy bottom pot. Brown chicken in 1/4 cup
oil. Remove chicken from pot and move pot to a cooler burner. Stir any
remaining oil into pot to cool the oil. Stir in flour and blend until
smooth. Return to medium heat stirring until flour tums a rich dark brown.
Add water, onion, and garlic. Simmer 30 to 40 minutes. In another pot, put
sausage with water to cover. Cook uncovered until water cooks away; then
allow sausage to brown (this will make the gumbo less greasy). Add sausage
and chicken to gumbo; cook 45 minutes on low heat. About 5 minutes before
gumbo is done, add onion tops and parsley. Remove from fire and add fil”š.
Serve with steamed rice. Serves 6 to 8.

Note: This is a basic gumbo recipe. It may be used for seafood by
omitting chicken, sausage and fil”š and by adding 2 to 3 lbs. peeled shrimp,
oysters or other seafood and 2 cups smothered okra. Add more water if too
