Gumbo 101

Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I don’t feel like I really had much exposure to gumbo. It wasn’t something my mom made for us, and there aren’t a ton of restaurants that serve it. I have to admit though that I feel like I was missing out! I had no idea how flavorful and fun gumbo is! If you’re less familiar with gumbo like me, it is a soup that is filled with so many goodies. In this Paleo gumbo, we’ve packed it with chicken thighs, sausage and shrimp in addition to veggies and lots of seasonings.

Two-Step Process

This slow cooker Paleo gumbo is pretty dang easy to make, but there is a second step beyond simply loading the crockpot! You just get the ingredients prepped and added to your crock pot or slow cooker, and then let everything cook while you go about your day. When there is about 30 minutes left or about 30 minutes before you plan to eat, add the pre-cooked sausage and shrimp to the crockpot. The shrimp will turn pink and be ready by the time you are ready to ladle the soup into big hearty bowls!
