This Cajun-inspired rice dish is made with Frontier's Gumbo Filé powder, a spicy ground herb made from the dried leaves of the sassafras tree. Gumbo Rice is great as a side dish or with meat and seafood added for a gumbo-esque main dish.

  • 3 cups hot water

  • 1 onion, minced

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 cup cooked rice

  • 1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Ground Gumbo Filé

  • Bell peppers, jalapenos or tomatoes to taste


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    2. In a small pot, add broth powder to hot water. Simmer 1-2 minutes.  

    3. In a skillet, sauté onion in butter. Add broth, rice, and Gumbo Filé. Bring to a simmer. Remove and place in large, covered casserole dish.

    4. Add in bell peppers, jalapenos or tomatoes if desired.
