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!
