This Healthy Gumbo is so simple and delicious. It has all the taste and feel of a traditional Louisiana gumbo, but it's gluten free and healing.
  • 3 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12-oz fully-cooked spicy sausage links (I used chorizo), sliced
  • 1 med onion, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 8 Tbs ghee (or can use unsalted butter)
  • 5 Tbs gluten-free flour (I used white flour, but I assume other flours would work well too)
  • 2 cups cooked chicken or turkey, diced or shredded
  • 1 Tbs Creole seasoning
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 qt chicken bone broth
  • 2 cups cauliflower rice
  • 1 bay leaf
  1. Heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium heat and add the sausage,
  2. Saute, stirring often, until the sausage browns a bit.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, remove the sausage to a bowl.
  4. Add the onion, celery, and bell pepper to the pot. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, about 5 mins.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, add this mixture to the sausage in the bowl.
  6. Add 4 Tbs ghee or butter to the pot. Whisk in the flour. Continue whisking for about 6 mins, or until the flour gets to be a medium brown color.
  7. Now add the sausage and veggies back into the pot. Stir to combine. Add the Creole seasoning and the smoked paprika, and stir well.
  8. Add the cooked chicken or turkey and stir to coat.
  9. Add the bone broth and the bay leaf to the pot.
  10. Stir in the cauliflower rice.
  11. Cover and simmer 10 mins. Then uncover and simmer 10 mins.
  12. Ladle into bowls and enjoy!
