  • 1/4 c Celery; chopped
  • 1/4 c Okra; sliced

Put the onion, scallion, bell pepper, celery, okra, garlic, and parsley in
a saucepan and cook while stirring for 5 minutes. Stir in the dry roux and
slowly blend in the water. Add the bay leaf, thyme, pepper, and cayenne and
bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Add the crab and the chicken,
cover the pot, and continue simmering for 30 minutes.

TO SERVE: Spoon the gumbo into warm soup bowls and top with 1/2 cup rice in

that it is), there are no tricks to getting this right. The preparation is
as simple as it sounds and as delicious as some far more complicated
