W’s Gumbo

I have asked W for his Gumbo recipe and he allowed me to publish it. He always uses cups!

  1. Slice 1 pound tofu. Heat 3 tbs peanut oil in a pan and fry tofu until golden brown, then remove from pan. The oil should be consumed by now.
  2. Add 1/3 cup of peanut oil and 2/3 cups of wheat flour to the pan and reduce heat. Roast until flour is golden brown.
  3. Add 1 cup of cubed onions and 1 clove of garlic, grated, and roast for several minutes.
  4. Add 2 cups of chopped celery stalks, 2 cups of sliced okra and 2 cups of cubed ball pepper, and as much chile as you can stand. You can also use adobo sauce! Roast again for several minutes.
  5. Add 3 cups of cubed tomatoes and 4 to 6 cups vegetable broth. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  6. Put the tofu back into the broth, until it’s warm.
  7. Spice up with even more chile!

W served the Gumbo with red rice and bread and he did not add as much chile as he pretended because he knows I can’t eat it 🙂 You can also use chicken, beef or crocodile instead of the tofu. W said, yesterday’s version was vegan.

We had a very nice evening and talked a lot about W’s Grammy and W made a Gumbo offering for one of his Gods. He is called Papa Legba, but W said many Christian Saints like Gumbo as well. I have given a bit to Lord Shiva and it was ok, I think. But He likes other things better 🙂

    Mit Papa Legba hatte ich übrigens auch schon zu tun. Er ist ein so genannter Loa.
