Wondering what to do with all your left-over Christmas turkey? Well, this actually uses turkey sausage, but I suppose any turkey meat would work just fine. In case you’re wondering, a gumbo is something between a soup and a stew, and very yummy!
Easy Turkey Gumbo Recipe
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Pound Turkey Sausages, cut into rounds
1 Small Onion, chopped
1 Red Pepper, chopped
2 – 3 Cloves Garlic, minced
4 Cups Chicken Broth
2 Cups Canned Plum Tomatoes and their Juice
1/2 Cup Long Grain RIce
1 tsp. Dried Thyme
1 pkg. Frozen Okra, thawed and sliced
Salt and Pepper to taste
Hot Sauce, Tabasco Sauce or Cayenne Pepper to taste (depending on how spicy you like it)
Heat oil in a skillet. Brown Sausages, and set aside. Add onion, garlic and red pepper to the skillet. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add broth, tomatoes and juice, rice and thyme and bring liquid to a boil. Return the sausage to the pan, and simmer until the rice is cooked (15 – 20 minutes) Add okra just to heat, and add seasoning sauce and salt and pepper. Enjoy!
