CrockPot Gumbo Recipe
–4 cups of chicken broth
–1 cup of brown rice
–1 cup frozen okra
–1/2 cup frozen corn
–1/2 chopped yellow onion
–1 can tomatoes and juice
–4-5 fully cooked sausages (I used 3 Chicken with garlic and artichokes, and 2 Chicken Cajun)
–1 1/2 cups frozen shrimp
–chop up your vegetables. I was using mostly frozen veggies, so only needed to chop the onion. If you have bell pepper, it would be a very nice addition.
–slice sausage into rounds
–dump everything into the crock, except for the frozen shrimp
–because the sausage has so much flavor, I opted to not season this any further. If you aren’t sharing with children, you might want to add some additional cajun seasoning–your choice.
–cook on low all day, or on high for 4-6 hours. The longer soups and stews are cooked, the better. The rice will cook, and absorb a lot of the liquid, but it will still be soup-y. If you are putting this together the night before, don’t add the rice until you are going to turn on the crock.
–20 min before serving, stir in the frozen shrimp
–serve with some crusty bread or corn muffins.
