When our ancestors settled in Louisiana, we’re pretty sure what kept them here was the seafood (it sure wasn’t the humidity). The good thing about living in our time instead of back then, is we can make a great pot of seafood gumbo in 15 minutes with Blue Runner® Ya-Ya Gumbo Base. Not convinced it will be as good as the gumbo grandmère used to make? One taste from your wooden spoon as you lean over the stove will back up our claim (watch your sleeve, if you’re cooking with gas!).
Shake can of Blue Runner® Ya-Ya Gumbo Base before opening.
Pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil into your saucepan.
Add chopped onion, celery, and bell pepper to pan on medium heat. Stir for 3-5 minutes.
Pour in gumbo base and stir.
