Aunt Frances’ Louisiana Gumbo

Aunt Frances’ Louisiana Gumbo
• 1 whole chicken, boiled and deboned (save stock from boiled chicken)

• 2 pounds smoked sausage, thinly sliced

• 1 1/2 cups flour

• 1 cup vegetable oil

• 1 bell pepper chopped

• 1 onion, chopped

• 3 stalks of celery, chopped

• 2 handfuls parsley

• 2 handfuls Tony Chachere’s Cajun seasoning mix

• cayenne pepper to taste


Over low heat, add oil to a large stock pot and heat for a minute or so. Add flour and stir until clumps are gone. Increase heat to medium-low.

Stir mixture constantly over medium-low heat for one hour, or until the roux is the color of a penny.

In a separate pan, saute celery, onion and parsley until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Transfer vegetables to roux mixture. Increase heat to medium and pour in chicken stock. Then add chicken, sausage and seasoning.

Cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours, or until gumbo has reached desired consistency. Serve with white rice.
