Vegan Filé Gumbo recipe.

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbs. olive oil
  • 3 Tbs. vegan butter substitute
  • 6 Tbs. flour or gluten-free flour
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped small
  • 2 large celery stalks, chopped small
  • 1 large green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups vegetable stock, or more if desired
  • 1 15-oz. can chopped fire-roasted (or regular) tomatoes in juice
  • 3 Tbs. filé powder
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 16 oz. spicy vegan sausage
  • 1 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves

Preparation

  1. Combine olive oil and vegan butter in large pot; heat on medium until butter is melted and foamy. Whisk in flour 1 Tbs. at a time, and continue heating, whisking almost constantly, for 10-15 minutes, until flour and oil mixture turns medium brown.
  2. Add onion, celery, bell peppers, and garlic. Stir to mix, and cook 3 minutes longer, stirring almost constantly, until onions just begin to soften.
  3. Slowly add 2 cups vegetable stock, stirring continuously. Stir in tomatoes, filé, oregano, paprika, black pepper, cayenne, and bay leaf. Chop or crumble vegan sausage into pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Add more stock if desired for thinner consistency, and heat through. Remove bay leaf. Shower with chopped parsley, and serve immediately.
