It's been super rainy here in South Texas, and the thought of Fall being right around the corner really had me craving some Gumbo.
Being GF and wanting gumbo is a tricky thing. You can't just go get a cup of gumbo from a restaurant because they all use wheat flour to make the traditional roux that is the base of many gumbos.
So of course I had to come up with a wonderful alternative and this one totally fits the bill...not to mention its done in the slow cooker!! You know how I roll, easy, simple and yummy. Serve it over Cauliflower rice to keep it low carb or brown rice if you're only eating GF.
Enjoy this wonderful meal. Be sure to come back and tell me how much you loved it.
