This zesty Gluten-free Gumbo is perfect for date night at home and tastes just as delicious as leftovers!

Ingredients:

Serves 4

  • 1 package Cajun-Style Andouille Bilinski’s Chicken Sausages, sliced
  • 1 lb andouille sausage
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil
  • 1/2 cup gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • Salt
  • 2 tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • Cayenne pepper to taste, optional
  • 32 oz chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp arrow root powder & 2 tbsp water, combined

Optional:

  • Tobasco or hot sauce
  • Rice or cauliflower rice
  • Parsley

Instructions:

1. In a Dutch oven or large pot, add in the chicken sausage to a small bit of avocado oil over medium heat. Cook until sausage has browned, remove and set aside.

2. In the same pot, reduce heat to medium-low. Add 1/2 cup avocado oil. Slowly whisk in gluten-free flour. This will create the roux. Whisk constantly for 7-8 minutes. This can burn easily so be patient and allow to cook slowly.

3. To the roux, add the vegetables, garlic & Cajun seasoning. Stir to coat the vegetables with the roux. Allow to cook for 3-5 minutes until vegetables have softened.

4. Slowly stir in the chicken stock until roux is completely combined into stock. Drop in the chicken breast & bay leaf. Bring to a boil & reduce to simmer. Simmer for 15-25 minutes.

5. Remove chicken and shred. Remove bay leaf. Add chicken and chicken sausage back to pot. Add the arrow root mixture and continue to simmer for 5 minutes.

6. Serve over rice, garnish with hot sauce and parsley.
