There are 2 things my husband and I love: hearty soup during the winter time and recipes that provide leftovers. This vegetarian gumbo recipe provides both! We are obsessed with this recipe. When we became vegetarian, one thing we both “missed” so to speak was gumbo. So we came up with this perfect recipe that totally hits the spot! It has all the typical hearty gumbo flavors combined with a plethora of veggies and spices that makes this recipe amazing!

This recipes makes 8 servings (yes, I know that’s a lot!). It is great as leftovers. In fact, my husband and I like to double the recipe and use an over-sized soup pot just so we can make it last for a few days. The other note I want to make sure you know is that since there are a lot of ingredients, it is best to prepare all items before beginning to cook. In our pictures, we have doubled the recipe, so you will see lots of ingredients, but don’t stress! Just follow the ingredient list and directions and you’ll be golden!


1. First, prepare all the ingredients:

—Cut the onions, bell peppers, and celery and combine in a bowl.

—Blend the diced tomatoes.

—Run the frozen okra and green beans under warm water until they are defrosted.

—Dice the carrots.

—Mix the spices in a bowl (cumin, oregano, paprika, and cayenne pepper).

—Measure out the flour.


2. Then, on high heat, mix the flour with 4 cups of water, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes (you can add more water if it gets too thick).

3. Add the onion, bell pepper, and celery, and cook 5 minutes, or until vegetables are softened.


4. Stir in all remaining ingredients (spices, carrots, okra green beans, diced tomatoes, and vegetable broth). Bring to a boil (this make take a little while) and then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook 40 minutes, or until carrots are tender.


Serve over rice and enjoy!
