Vegan Gumbo

I've never had gumbo before, so I wasn't sure what to expect from this recipe...but to my surprise, it was really good! I made it pretty spicy and served it over brown rice. At first, I was intimidated by the recipe, but it was SO easy to make! Enjoy!

Ingredients :
16 ounces veggie sausage links, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 large green pepper, chopped
2 cloves fresh garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayeene pepper
1 16-ounce can diced tomatoes
1 cup celery, chopped
4 cups vegetable stock
1 cup water
salt to taste (if desired)
Hot sauce to taste (if desired)
2 cups cooked brown rice

Directions :

Combine flour and oil in a large pot, stirring constantly. Sauté over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add onion, pepper, garlic, thyme, and ground red pepper. Cook for 1 minute on medium heat, stirring frequently.
Stir in veggie sausage, tomatoes, celery, vegetable stock, water, cayenne pepper and cook 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Add salt and hot sauce if desired. Serve over rice.
