When it comes to New Orleans food, gumbo is at the top of my list. This comforting stew is loaded with flavor, no one will guess it’s actually a gluten free gumbo!
Growing up in Rhode Island gumbo was not something we ever ate. I knew what it was, I knew it had okra in it. So I hated it! Why did I hate okra? Many people hate the slimy texture, some don’t like the flavor. However, I hated it because I was once in a play and there was a whole monolog about how gross okra is. I decided in the middle school auditorium that I would never eat the stuff. This monolog stuck with me a very long time.
Then I moved to South Carolina and all that changed. My roommate was born and raised in the south and loved okra, it was always in our house. One day when I hadn’t been to the grocery store, I decided to steal some of her food. (You know, everyone loves a roommate that eats their food!) I threw what I thought was popcorn chicken in the oven, low and behold they were fried okra bits. It was then I discovered that I LOVE okra! Some people may find that slimy texture off-putting, but I love it!
After discovering I loved okra I wonder what other delicious foods I had incorrectly written off as gross. Which is how I discovered I love gumbo! Savory sausage, salty shrimp, and slimy okra all in one stew? I’ve been hooked ever since.
