After brainstorming all sorts of possible uses for the peppers, I decided on something I’ve been wanting to try for a while– Gumbo. I found a recipe in one of my mom’s cookbooks and set to veganizing it. I substituted black-eyed-peas for the meat and added extra okra, because I adore that squishy green vegetable. The result was a delectable, hearty veggie gumbo.

    OOOHHH yum! I love okra, but I can’t seem to cook it at home. Only the Ethiopian restaurants I go to know how to make it right. But your gumbo looks yummy!
