What's For Dinner? "Vegetable Gumbo"

I know what you're thinking, "Gumbo without meat as the main ingredient?", but I'm on the third day eating this leftover and I can't get enough of the stuff! The original recipe from Food Network magazine is totally vegetarian but I decided it needed a little bacon (and just a little) to enhance it. If you love black eyed peas, you're going to LOVE this!!

If you want yours to be vegetarian, omit the bacon and substitute the chicken broth for vegetable broth. 

Vegetable "Gumbo"


3 Tbsp vegetable or olive oil
3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 small onion, diced
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
3-4 stalks of celery, diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
Cajun seasoning (like Tony Chachere's)
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tsp smoked Paprika (you can buy this in the bulk section at Whole Foods for lower cost than a bottle)
2 cups chicken broth
1 pound Kale, stemmed and chopped
1 - 10oz package frozen black-eyed peas
2-3 slices of cooked bacon, chopped in bits
