  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. turmeric powder

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a medium pot on medium heat. Saute onions for 3 minutes until soft; add garlic. Saute another 2 minutes.
  2. Add Dried Spices Mix to onions and garlic. Stir around until fragrant (about 30 seconds).
  3. Add worcestershire sauce and tomato paste and stir around until it thickens a little.
  4. Pour in vegetable broth until a boil occurs. Simmer. Place the fresh thyme sprigs and bay leaves while simmering. 20 minutes.

  6. Serve over a bed of brown rice. Sprinkle with more seasoning.


Notes

You can double the Dried Spice Mix in order to sprinkle it on top of the Gumbo before eating. It is so tasty! Just make sure you only use half of it when you are pouring it in the pot.
