30-Minute Chicken & Sausage Gumbo Recipe: A Simple Gumbo Recipe for National Gumbo Day by 30Seconds Food
Gumbo is a rich stew-like dish that originated in Louisiana in the 1800s. It always starts with a roux, the holy trinity (celery, bell peppers and onions), stock and then proteins are added, usually sausage, seafood or chicken. While some gumbos simmer all day, this easy gumbo recipe is ready in about 30 minutes. Perfect for busy weeknights or lazy weekends.
