To keep it simple, we’ve opted for just the essential ingredients in this rendition of the hearty Creole favorite: sausage, okra, rice and a little spice.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
12 ounces  hot Italian turkey sausage links, removed from casings
2 teaspoons  canola oil
1 large  onion, diced
4 cloves  garlic, minced
1 teaspoon  Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons  all-purpose flour
4 cups  chopped tomatoes
4 cups  reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 1/2 cups  frozen chopped okra
3/4 cup  instant brown rice
1 bunch  scallions, trimmed and sliced (optional)

Ingredient Note: Cajun seasoning is a spice blend that usually includes cayenne and black pepper, salt, thyme, garlic and onion powder and paprika. Look for it in the spice section of the supermarket.
Sausage Gumbo Recipe at
Cook sausage in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, breaking it up into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl lined with paper towels.

Return the pan to medium-high heat and add oil. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until translucent, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and Cajun seasoning and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add flour and cook, stirring to coat the vegetables, until the flour browns, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to release their juices, about 2 minutes. Stir in broth, cover, increase heat to high and bring to a boil.

Return the sausage to the pan, along with okra and rice; reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook until the okra is heated through and the rice is tender, about 10 minutes. Serve sprinkled with sliced scallions, if using.

This is NOT Cajun gumbo!
As a Cajun I can assure you this is not even clost to tasting like gumbo. The RULE, you use the 'Cajun trinity' - onions, bell pepper, celery. Normal seasonings: salt, balck pepper, garlic, onion powder, thyme, cayenne(tabasco)and more garlic! Made a basic pot of the recipe here, set aside a small sample, Added the PROPER seasonings and ingredients to the remainder. The adjusted gumbo was okay, the original wouldn't pass even the McDonalds test.
