I made this and think it is ok but although there is the desire to make it simple, most gumbo dishes would include celery. Celery adds fiber, nutrients, flavor and few calories so why not?
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.

Thought it would be too spicy with hot sausage, but it added so much flavor! I used a large can of whole tomatoes which I broke up by hand as I added them with the juice. I didn't have Cajun seasoning so I substituted creole seasoning and a pinch of chili powder, cumin and thyme. Delicious, rich flavors for so little calories!! Ginger
Made this last night and it was really great! I had to get regular turkey sausage, but added some red pepper flakes and Hot Pete for some extra spice. Also used canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh, but followed the rest of the recipe exactly. It had a really nice flavor and was very filling for such few calories!
