Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large Dutch oven over medium heat, toast the flour for 5 minutes, until a light brown color. Whisk in 1 cup chicken stock, and then transfer to a small bowl to cool.
  2. In the same pot, sweat Andouille sausage with 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Add onions, peppers, celery, garlic and 1 teaspoon salt and sweat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add spices, stir to combine. Add tomato, okra, and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes.
  3. While the gumbo is simmering, prepare the meatballs. In a medium bowl, combine the ground turkey, shrimp, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly and shape into approximately 1 tablespoon-sized balls.
  4. Add meatballs to the gumbo and simmer for an additional 10 minutes. Season with 1/4 teaspoon Louisiana style hot sauce.
