Light Flavorful Gumbo

Light Flavorful Gumbo

1 carton reduced sodium chicken broth or stock
1 package Louis Rich Turkey Smoked Sausage chopped in to small circles
Optional- petite cooked shrimp deveined and tail removed
1 tbsp Cajun seasoning, you can add more if you like it with more kick
1 tsp pepper
2 tbsp hot sauce
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tbsp minced jarred garlic
1 cup instant brown rice
1 chopped onion
1 chopped green bell pepper
1 cup chopped celery
1 14.5 oz can stewed tomatoes no salt added
water if needed to keep it from getting to thick as the rice cooks

Mix all ingredients except sausage, shrimp, tomatoes and rice in a large pot

Cover and simmer on medium heat at a low boil for about 15 minutes or until veggies are tender, add remaining ingredients and simmer until rice is tender about 5-10 minutes

Stir the gumbo as it cooks to keep the rice from sticking, also you may need to add hot water to achieve your desired consistency for the Gumbo

Serve with additional hot sauce if desired
