(about 10 to 15 min.) remove from heat and add celery, onions and bell pepper. This will cook veggies

and arrest the cooking of the roux.

Remove some stock from the pot and reserve, add remaining ingrediants and if you have room add back the remaining stock.(should have about 2 1/2 quarts of stock)

simmer for 1 hr on low

Probably won't need salt

Skim off olive oil makes it better and its better the next day. Good to freeze in QT size ziploc freezer bags or

plastic containers
