"Try These"


Marie's Gumbo


Serves 10 to 12



Needs 3 cups cooked rice


3 cans Italian stewed tomatoes
1 pkg frozen sliced okra
1 6oz. Can tomato paste
3 beef bouillon cubes
4 t. Worcestershire sauce
1/8 t. ground cloves
1T. chili powder
1/8 t. dried basil
1 bay leaf
1 ½ t. salt
¼ t. pepper
4 Cups water


Saute 2 garlic cloves and 2 chopped onions and ½ green pepper thinly sliced in ¼ cup olive oil until tender. Stir in 2 T. flour for 2 minutes.
Add all ingredients above. Simmer 45 minutes.

Five minutes before serving add 2 orange roughie fillets cut up, 1-½ pounds Italian sausage sliced, 1 pound deveined shelled raw shrimp, and 3 cups cooked rice.

Simmer covered 5 minutes.

A good alternate is substitute chicken for the fish. We've twice had guests who didn't eat fish.

Enjoy, Marie, Oct. 1999
