In case you're wondering, these are names of American Football teams. Anyway, she never used okra or file powder in her gumbo and it was delicious! She always used a spice called "Tony Chacheres" Cajun spice.

    And here is a link on how to make a perfect roux! It is sort of a deep caramel color. Good Luck with your gumbo and let us know how it comes out!

    I'm convinced Tony's is the key. I got my recipe from a Cajun and they used Tony's and I use Tony's, but I also use okra.

    I always thought gumbo, by definition, uses okra, or if there is no okra, file gumbo goes in instead to thicken the stew. Am I wrong, or has the definition of what gumbo is changed?
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    According to Wikipedia, it can either use okra or file' powder.


    Gumbos can be broadly divided between the use of okra as a thickener, and recipes using filé powder in that role.


    But the word Gumbo is derived from the word that African's use for okra, so I'm guessing that originally Gumbo contained okra.
    I like okra, so to me it isn't Gumbo unless there's okra.

    Speaking of Okra... have you ever roasted it?
    Use small 2"- 4" whole okra pods,
    Line a jelly roll pan with foil, spread a thin layer of olive oil on the pan
    Take the okra roll it in the olive oil, just to coat, lay it in a single layer on the pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper and roast in a 400 degree oven.
    Until lightly brown
    Turning often and watch, it burns easily.
    I have been cooking it this way instead of frying

    Hubs and I went to a little mom and pop store the other day and had a bowl of mulligatawany, it was quite good. Does anyone have a good recipe for this?

    Roasted is the only way my family will eat okra. I grew up eating it, so okra slime doesn't bother me. I like it roasted, but I also like it other ways as well.

    Is there still slime if it's roasted? I'd be willing to give it a try if I could get a "no-slime" guarantee..

    roasting de-slimes it.

    I cut off the tops before roasting to help in the desliming.
