Enjoy the flavors of traditional New Orleans' cuisine in this hearty and colorful, gumbo-inspired stew that's packed with healthy vegetables, lentils and chickpeas.



    1. Heat a large pot over medium-low heat.

    2. Add olive oil and slowly whisk in flour. Continue to whisk until mixture is medium brown, thick and bubbly, around 3 to 4 minutes.

    3. Add the celery, onion, carrots and Seafood Seasoning, and stir until veggies soften, around 5 minutes. Add water to the mixture a little at a time if mixture starts to stick.

    4. Add garlic and continue to cook for 1 more minute.

    5. Turn heat up to medium high and add tomatoes, sweet peppers, okra, potatoes, lentils, chickpeas, thyme, broth powder, brown sugar and 4 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and let the soup simmer for 30 to 40 minutes, or until lentils are tender, stirring occasionally.

    6. Add 1/2 cup water to gumbo if you desire a thinner stew consistency. Taste and then add lemon juice, salt, pepper and a dash or two of the Frontier Seafood Seasoning just before serving. Add hot sauce if desired.
