Turkey Bone Gumbo

  • Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 pound smoked sausage, such as andouille or kielbasa, chopped
  • 2 quarts Turkey Broth
  • Reserved turkey meat from broth
  • Reserved onions and celery from broth
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions

Directions

  • Combine the oil and flour in a large cast-iron pot or enameled cast-iron Dutch oven, over medium heat. Stirring slowly and constantly for 20 to 25 minutes, make a dark brown roux, the color of chocolate.
  • Season the onions, bell peppers, and celery with the salt and cayenne. Add this to the roux and stir until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the sausage and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 45 minutes. Add the reserved turkey meat and the reserved onions and celery and cook for 15 minutes. Add the parsley and green onions.
  • Serve in soup bowls with rice. (FilÈ powder can be added at the table according to personal taste.)
