Four beans in a gumbo

A good stew. That’s slow cooking for lazy people. You fill the pot and it cooks by itself.

Gumbo z’herbes (vegetarian). Chicken and sausage gumbo.

I had frozen some gumbo roux. So I used it with other items I had in the freezer and fridge :

Gombos (okras). As we say in my place, if my uncle had none, I’d call him “my aunt”. If my gumbo had no gombos, I’d call it a cassoulet.

Broad beans AKA favas.

White beans.

Black soy bean.
Natto (not frozen).
The fermented flavor of natto (fermented soy beans) gave a great touch here. So I thought : Let’s be crazy ! And I have salted with miso, another fermented product.

Then spinach and fresh basil. Plus the Cajun spices.

A colorful stew. Delicious !

That’s a one dish meal. Enjoy with rice or bread.
