I would not consider this recipe a true gumbo. This recipe was not soupy at all as expected. The vegetables (especially the celery) were still very crunchy. I recommend cooking the celery and peppers much longer. Maybe also add a little more broth. I will not add this to my recipe file.

We enjoyed this dish very much! It may not be authenic gumbo, but it's a simple one-pot recipe, and the results are very tasty. Saute the vegetables till tender (however long that takes); I added the garlic last, and sauteed for 1 or 2 minutes more. This gumbo made two meals for DH and me; leftovers freeze well. I used 2 tsps of Cajun seasoning, and added 1/4 cup water to thin the gumbo.

I've made this so many times, and it always comes out FANTASTIC. I substituted the smoked sausage for andouille sausage the last time I made it and it was just as good. Definitely recommend this recipe.
