Fresh vegetables accompany smoked sausage and rice for a deliciously zesty gumbo.
- Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute. Sprinkle flour and seasoning over vegetables; cook and stir 1 minute.
- Stir in sausage, tomatoes and broth; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 10 to 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender and sauce is slightly thickened.
- Spoon rice into four shallow serving bowls; top with sausage mixture and parsley.
Variation: For sausage and shrimp gumbo, stir 8 ounces peeled and deveined uncooked shrimp into the gumbo during the last 5 minutes of simmering time.
