Vegetarian Gumbo – How To Make Gumbo – Vegan Recipe


This Vegetarian Gumbo is very easy to make. If you are a Vegetarian, there is no reason that you can’t get your Gumbo fix. This Vegetable Gumbo may not be as hearty as an Authentic Gumbo Recipe, but it still has most of the flavors that a Traditional Gumbo has. I chopped these vegetables a bit larger than usual to make it is hearty as possible.

Ingredients for Vegetarian Gumbo:
*3/4 Cup Canola Oil
* 1 Cup Flour
* Cups Vegetable Broth
* 12 Ounces Amber Beer
* 1 1/2 Cups Chopped Onions
* 3/4 Cups Chopped Jalapenos
* 3/4 Cups Chopped Orange Peppers
* 3/4 Cups Chopped Red Peppers
* 1 Cup Sliced Celery
* 3/4 Cups Sliced Okra
* 3 Portobello Mushrooms Cubed

  1. it looks great, but why the beer? I've never used beer in gumbo! And not a huge deal, but if you're using okra, you don't need a roux! i know it sounds sacrilegious, but okra thickens just as well as a brown roux would, if not better! That being said, if you still want that dark brown color, saute the onions until they're damn near burnt before you add anything else (I do this even when i use a roux). and use a roasted veggie stock!! it will be darker and richer in flavor than a normal veggie stock would.

  2. I made this and just finished my first ever bowl of gumbo. As a result, I can say that it was "the best gumbo I have ever had"! Hahahahah. Mind you, I don't have a clue if it tasted even close to the real thing. Unfortunately, my grocery store didn't have gumbo file so with Google's help, I substituted a little root beer. I was a little heavy handed with the Jalapenos and cayenne pepper so it ended up being quite spicy. Thanks for the great recipe!

  3. Man, when you go Hippie you don't fool around! Seriously. I make vegan gumbo, often….for my Vegan People, or when I don't want to eat a lot of meat. I've substituted black-eyed peas, for the mushrooms, and ended up with a tasty dish…now I have to finish watching the video! Oh, like that Alaskan Amber, beer, too….Thumbs Up!!
