Gluten-free gumbo, from Apron Strings
Donna, who blogs on Apron Strings with her daughter, Anne, waded fearlessly into a famous New Orleans chef's gumbo recipe and adapted it for more practical home kitchens. Gumbo is a stew that starts with a roux, to which crawfish or shrimp or chicken, sausage, and okra are added. This gumbo resembles the traditional recipe, except that Donna made her roux with gluten-free rice flour. She added a splash of cider vinegar, a trick learned from her grandmother, at the end, for additional depth of flavor. The recipe makes a huge batch, so freeze the leftovers and know that whenever you're in the mood for a celebration, the good times will roll!
