Vegetable Gumbo with or without Chicken ;)

Mmmmm, Mmmmm, Mmmmmm Good!

The latest recipe I made from Mary Frances’ Gluten Free Cooking School was a hit with the entire family! This Yummy soup is full of tasty veggies and was absolutely dee-lish…best part, not too spicy.

I found this little tidbit HERE and quickly fell in love with it’s simplicity and adaptability ~ one of us doesn’t like diced tomatoes so I simply substituted the diced tomatoes with Tomato puree and it was a SMASH! I must also admit that I only made a 1/2 of Mary Frances’ recipe, next time (and there will be a next time) I will make a full batch and freeze as she recommends — yes, we like it THAT well!

Here is what I made from Mary Frances’ recipe:

1 med onion diced

2 cloves garlic chopped

Sauteed in 2 T. olive oil

32 oz Swanson Organic Vegetable Broth

8 oz frozen Okra

16 oz frozen mix veggies – I used a handful frozen green beans and 2 handfuls frozen peas/carrots mix.

leftover chicken from 2 nights before diced = about 2 split chicken breast

1/2 ~ 28oz can of Full Circle Organic Tomato Puree

1/4 teas thyme

couple pinches dried sage

salt and pepper added at the table

Mmmm Mmmmm goodness!!
