Its getting cold her in the Carolinas so Its time to start making soups and chilies. The other night I made one of our favorite...Gumbo.
This is a recipe giving by my late Mother-in-Law. Its simple and delicious. Best of all, it does not call for any fancy stuff, just basic foods you probably already have nearby.
In a large sauce pan or skillet, heat olive oil over med-high heat. Add onions, okra, celery and cook for 6-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in garlic, Cajun seasoning, parsley, and sausage and cook for 3-4 minutes.
Add chicken broth, tabasco and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and add chicken.
Cook 4-5 minutes or longer until chicken is heated through.
Serve over rice and add more tabasco if you desire.
Refrigerate left overs.
1 cup gumbo with 1 cup rice = approx. 200 calories. (per "myfitnesspal" app)
