crockpot vegan gumbo

New Recipe Alert!

As I’m sure you have noticed, ever since I recently revived my blog, I’ve been focusing less on recipes and more on other topics. Not to worry, though, because I do have some recipes tucked away that I’ve been planning to share with you.

This is one such recipe. We made this crockpot vegan gumbo a few weeks ago when the weather had begun to cool down, and it was just perfect. It is filled with veggies, and picky eaters might not even notice how healthy this dish is. Any source of protein can  easily be added to this gumbo, and it can be served with brown rice, white rice, or quinoa.

The best part is that the prep time for this recipe is essentially negligible – just throw everything together in the crock pot and let it cook for the next several hours!
