Turkey Gumbo

From Whole Foods Recipes, http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/2665

Not really gumbo, but sounds good for a weeknight meal.

Serves 6

This easy gumbo is packed with an assortment of colorful veggies.


1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 small yellow onion, chopped
1 (16-ounce) package frozen bell pepper strips
1 (6-ounce) package frozen cut okra
1 cup frozen corn
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, with their liquid
1 turkey leg (about 1 pound), skin removed
1 cup cooked brown rice
Salt and pepper to taste
Hot sauce to taste


Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add garlic and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add peppers, okra, corn and tomatoes and stir well. Nestle turkey leg in pot and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until turkey falls easily off of the bone, about 1 1/2 hours. Remove turkey leg, discard bone and then shred meat and return to pot. Stir in rice, salt, pepper and hot sauce and cook about 10 minutes more.
