Flexitarian Gumbo is Perfect for National Soup Month

Typically, in Louisiana, January is a popular month for soup. With mild Fall and Spring Seasons, Winter seems to be the best time to eat the state soup, which of course is Gumbo.

I just taught a virtual class on the secrets of my Gumbo recently, it's been a learning curve to learn how to be comfortable talking to a screen instead of living folks. All in all, it went great, I made the roux really fast, demonstrating a new technique of heating the oil really hot, toss in the flour, and stirring like crazy. The result is a super quick roux that gets dark really fast. I also taught my students how to make a plant-based version of gumbo that is nothing short of delicious.
