Keto Gumbo with Chicken, Andouille Sausage, Shrimp

Kate APosted by

The temperatures are dropping closer to zero, and it’s been raining for days, so I’ve been trying to figure out what to make that is warm and filling but not just another soup. Gumbo came to mind, it’s less soup and more just an entire meal in a pot, but I didn’t think I could make it without a roux (my cousin from Louisiana will tell you it’s ALL about the roux). Turns out you can make a delicious gumbo and keep it entirely keto! This recipe involves 3 different kinds of meats and plenty of flavor.

How do you thicken the sauce and keep it Keto? The answer is okra! I love okra and tomatoes in my keto gumbo, but feel free to change this if you don’t like okra or tomatoes, just know the consistency might be different.

You can also do more bell pepper and no okra, add filé powder, take out the tomatoes and do more broth. It’s a dish that I find hard to mess up so don’t feel afraid to play around with it.

So basically, okra and filé powder both work.

Ingredients:

  • 1lb chicken thighs
  • ½ lb. andouille sausage, sliced
  • 1 lb. shrimp, uncooked
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, diced
  • 3-4 celery stalks, diced
  • 1.5 cups sliced okra, frozen or fresh
  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 2-3 cups broth, beef or chicken
  • 1 tablespoon creole seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp. avocado oil
  • 3 tbsps. butter
  • ½ tsp xanthum gum, optional

Directions:

Cut your chicken thighs into ½ inch cubes. Pour the avocado oil into a large pot, turn the burner on high and let it heat up. After 2-3 minutes add your chicken thighs and salt. Stir and let it cook for 5 minutes.

Add the bell pepper, onion, garlic and celery. Keep your burner on medium high and let the vegetables cook until soft, about 10 minutes.

Stir in the sausage and let everything cook another 5 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, broth, creole seasoning, and butter. Turn the burner down to low and let everything simmer for 45 minutes to an hour.

Put the shrimp into the pot and let it cook for another 5 minutes.

If you like your gumbo on the thicker side, whisk in the xanthum gum.

I eat this dish by itself but it’s perfect over riced cauliflower.
