Gumbo ya-ya, from The Perfect Pantry


If you've been wanting to try Cajun cooking but fear getting the roux just right, let this gumbo ya-ya from The Perfect Pantry introduce you to the richness of a brown roux. It's not hard to make -- really, it's just butter and flour, and nothing to fear -- and this chicken and sausage stew is absolutely worth learning the technique. After you make the roux, you toss a bunch of ingredients into the pot, just like any other stew, and serve it over rice. The recipe calls for two different types of sausage, so use what you have on hand, or what you prefer, and let the good times roll.

I first had this in New Orleans and loved it! Would be so fun to make at home!
