Louisiana Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo

It’s hard to believe that this gumbo recipe is carb and gluten free, but it is!

Spicy, hearty, delicious sausage and shrimp gumbo pairs beautifully with cauliflower rice.

It’s full of different vegetables with plump and succulent shrimp, perfect for any occasion.

The best part is that you can make a large batch and then portion them out for the freezer and pack them for an easy grab and go lunch.

Traditional gumbo has both file powder and okra, but if you can’t find them, it’s okay.

Both of them will help thicken the broth. Make sure if the option is open to you, you get organic ingredients.

Not only will they taste better, but they’re better for you.
